Sending the Advent Calendar on the Road - Day 10

Today's Card is another quick to make card.

Close to My Heart Chillin' Stamp Set (D1228)
Close to My Heart Snowflake Kisses Stamp Set (C1327)
Close to My Heart Exclusive Inks Ink Pads: Vanilla Cream (Z2169) & Grey Flannel (z2124)
3.75" x 3.75" Close to My Heart Dutch Blue CS (1241)
4.25" x 8.5" Ponderosa Pine CS (1276) -- fold in half making a 4.25" x 4.25" card base
4" x 3" White Daisy CS (1385)
Artist/decorating Chalks - Use the darkest blue in the set
Zots Glue Dots
Pop Dots / Dimensionals
6" Grosgrain Ribbon
Paper Pierce Punch set (tool and pad)
corner rounder

Use corner rounder to round all 4 corners of the Dutch Blue square CS. Then, use your ruler, piercing tool and pad to pierce at 1/8" increments all the way around the Dutch Blue Square.

Next, you need to Chalk-pop the snow flakes -- randomly stamp some snowflakes using the Vanilla Cream (you can also use the VersaMark or White Daisy, because all 3 are pigment based and great for chalk-popping). Let dry while stamping the Polar Bear with Grey Flannel Ink and then color the scarf and other areas of the Polar Bear. To create the blue on blue look, use darkest blue in circular motion over the top of the snowflakes, they will pop from the paper. Use the same blue to fill in the area between your pierced dots and the edge.
Hint the longer you let the ink dry before you start this step, the less the shadow area around the snowflake (I just happened to want the shadow effect for this card).

Finally, use the pop-dots to attach the polar bear and use a glue dot to put the bow in place.

aaahhhh....all done for Day 10. See you tomorrow for Day 11!
