Candy Cane Bear

Happy Thursday! Hope you're all doing good and are enjoying some nice Fall weather. Beautiful sunny  but windy day here today. Definitely Fall!

Yesterday I had some time to ink up and color a new Christmas stamp from Whimsy stamps, and I even had time to create this card :-) Always happy when that happens as usually I do my coloring on one day and then make the card another day.  

The image has been colored with copic markers on xpress it blending card. Then fussy cut. The hill was cut using Whimsy's stitched border trio die. I stamped the image again onto the card front before adhering the image. The cute sentiment is from an older Whimsy set "mini holiday postmarks". I used the matching mini postage die to cut it out. Embellished with glitter and gold cord. And I used a white Faber Castell Pitt marker to make snowflakes on the blue paper. 

Products used:
(the above are all from Whimsy Stamps)
I also used
SU cardstock and designer paper,
 xpress it blending card, neenah
 gold cord, stickles glitter
