I just received my holiday pre-order, and couldn’t wait to open the products, and get started! The first thing I did was fussy cut one of the Polar Bears from the Beary Christmas Designer Paper. Isn’t he adorable? This will be available September 6th, along with all the new products in the Sept-Dec Mini Catalog.

Beary Christmas!


Next, I experimented with several backgrounds, and chose Balmy Blue Cardstock, cut with a Christmas Classics Die. This die set is amazing, and it will be getting lots of use. After attaching the Polar bear to the die-cut with Dimensionals, I decided on a Basic White Cardstock layer, 4″ X 5 1/4″.


Prior to gluing the white layer to a Balmy Blue card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I embossed it with the new, Snowflake Sky Embossing Folder.


The sentiment, “Merry Christmas” is from Ringed With Nature, a current stamp set in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. I stamped it in Balmy Blue Ink, and used a Wonderful Thoughts Die for cutting.

To complete the card, I added four Pastel Self-Adhesive Sequins.
