Snowflake Bears - Christmas Card Project

Snowflake Bears - Christmas Card Project - By Donna. 
This Christmas card design is very quick to make, so if you are looking for last minute ideas, why not give it a go.

Make the base card by scoring and folding a sheet of A4 snowflake card CRC157P. Cut a long strip of grey/silver dotty paper CDH173P to 45mm wide and stick it across the card with the top edge at 45mm from the top fold, trim the ends of the strip to the card edges.

Add the die-cut wording banner CDS015G using sticky fixers to bring it away from the card, the left hand edge of the banner is just about at the centre of the card. Run some silver peel-off borders XL703U-02 along the edges of the dotty strip and use a couple of short lengths to make a 'hanger' for the wording banner.

Matt two polar bear toppers TOP001 onto silver Mirri card MIR02C and trim leaving a 3mm border on all sides. Place sticky fixers onto the back of each panel and mount onto the card overlapping the dotty strip as shown. The exact position is not important but make sure you leave enough space at the left for a large snowflake.

Scatter large and small glitter snowflakes ZL631U-82 over the card and add pale blue gems GEM74 to the centre of each large snowflake to give them a bit of sparkle. Complete the card with some red glitter dots ZL729U-54 over the berries on both toppers.

Donna.
