I am literally just skatin’ by this Christmas, as this is only the 3rd fully hand crafted Christmas card I’ve had a chance to make this year. LOL I hope the cuteness of these adorable polar bears from the Sugar Pea Designs Eskimo Kisses stamp set will make up for my lack of crafty mojo.
I Copic colored these cuties with just some blues and some warm and whites/greys to keep the scene looking cool:
Bear fur: W0 and W1 with a hint of blush to the cheeks and inside ears with E000
Fur trim on coat: C00 and C0
Dark blue: B24 and B28
Light blue: B00 and B01
I also used a Copic Multiliner Black Pen in 0.05 pt to doodle on skates onto the bear with the coat and stripes onto the scarf of the other bear just to make them coordinate better together. Lastly to add a bit of shine, I used a Sakura Black Glaze Pen on the noses and eyes.
For the “scene” I used some shimmery silver or cool grey and white card stock and die cut “snow banks” with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Dies. The sky is just some scrap pale blue card stock. The sentiment on the front is a simple “Holiday Greetings”, and the inside sentiment is the longer, perfectly coordinated sentiment, “Just Skatin’ By with a Very Merry Christmas”, both from the same Sugar Pea Designs “Eskimo Kisses” stamp set.
For some added sparkle, I added 7 (I love adding embellishments in odd numbers) sequins of different sizes to the card front. I used glitter glue to adhere them, adding even more shine.
