Can't be with you

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!
Welcome back to our crafty space.
Raluca here with a new card showcasing the absolutely adorable "Bear Mail" stamp set.

There is always a good friend or a family member that isn't near you at Christmas. This card is a perfect touch to your gift or you can send it as a happy mail.

Now let's talk about the process of making this card:

- I stamped all the images for the card, colored them using alcohol markers and colored pencils and fussy cut them. I stretched the bear stamp ad colored it as a cute Panda bear.
- I prepared a teal panel from cardstock and ink blended some Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. I die cut some falling snow using a die from my stash. You can also use the fabulous "Winter Day" stencil from Create a Smile for the falling snow.
- I cut some snow hills from white cardstock and adhered them to the panel.
- I mounted all my images using foam tape and added a sentiment white embossed on a piece of white cardstock colored with alcohol markers matching the pink from my images.
- I glued the panel on a white card base leaving two white borders on the sides.
And my card was done. Love how this bear looks colored as a Panda!
