Warm Hearted Friends

Happy Friday!  Today's card uses the adorable polar bears from the Cottage Cutz.  I think these are just about everyone's favorite, they are so darn cute!  Although meant for Christmas, I chose to use them today as a friendship card rather than a holiday card.

I cut all pieces from white card stock and used Distress Oxide ink to color them.
 I assembled all the pieces.  Although I assembled the hat, I ultimately decided not to use it.
For the background I used the same pink inks and a stencil made from the second smallest circle of the Double Stitched Rectangle set.  I blended an area larger than I needed so I could adjust where to cut the rectangle.  I splattered the blend with water to give the feel of falling snow.
I cut four panels, two using the third largest Stitched Rectangle die and two using the second largest die so that the panels stacked would be a bit thicker than regular card stock.
The message is stamped centered on the bottom of an A2 card base in grey ink.  After adhering the panels I glued down the snow and birch trees. 
I wanted the birch trees to go to the top of the rectangle and the snow to be at the bottom.  You can see that there is a gap here.  But that will get covered up by the bears.
The bears are popped up using foam dots.  This was a simple card to make that is wonderful for a good friend.  These little bears are perfect for almost every occasion!
