Ice-Beary Greetings

Happy weekend, every one! =) I am sharing a set of card and tag made using cute images from Whiff of Joy Stamps with you today.

I wanted to show you the differences in size between the original Ice-Beary Greetings and the mini version - Cute Icebear that was released in July.

I stamped the Ice-Beary Greetings on PTI's Stamper's Select White card stock then colored him with Copic markers. The image is cut and embossed using a Standard Circles Large die then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Classic Scalloped Circles Large die before I stitched the layers together. The sentiment piece is cut and embossed using a Classic Ovals Large die then matted with a piece of pattered paper using a Classic Scalloped Ovals Large die.

Mmmm.... I do like making wintery card in a hot summer day. =)

The patterned paper is from the Good Cheer collection by October Afternoon. I added some coarse glitters to the snowflakes and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

The mini Cute Icebear is cut using a Lacy Circles die with a similar background design.

That's all I have. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
