I chose the Stampin Up Beary Christmas Suite to make my card. It was the first suite that jumped out me when I was looking through the Stampin Up Holiday Mini. I was knew in the moment that this what the set I was ordering right away! I love the Polar Bear, it just makes me smile! This card is so fun and easy to make! I used Night of Navy Cardstock as the cardbase. And then I added an embossed layer in Night of Navy. The embossing folder is also new called Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder. Before adhering the layer to the cardbase with dimensionals, I wrapped the Balmy Blue Sparkle Ribbon around the layer and finished with a bow. I stamped the greeting in Misty Moonlight and use the 2 smallest rectangle from the Scalloped Contour Dies. While I was stamping, I also stampin a piece of Basic White with a polar bear and snowflakes for inside of the card and also on my envelopes.
I added dimensionals to the back of the greeting and adhere to the card over the ribbon. For the Polar Bear on the right, I used the Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Beary Cute Punch, to cut one bear out. For the bear on the left, I used scissors and just fussy cut. I finished the front of the card by adding a few Adhesive Backed Glitter Sequins.
