Polar Bear Holiday

It's been over a month since I last made a card or posted on my blog.  October was very unproductive - the flu bug hit me just before our Canadian Thanksgiving and it's taken me a long time to recover. I also ended up in the hospital for three days - they still aren't sure what the problem is, so more tests are scheduled. All of this means that I lost interest in crafting!! But now I'm finally starting to think about the upcoming holiday season.
I bought Polar Bear Holiday (Close to My Heart) in August and decided to combine it with a few sets from Papertrey Ink to make two Christmas cards.

I cut one of the Stitched Circles from Stamper's Select White card stock and then stamped the polar bears with Memento Tuxedo Black, in order to colour the images with copic markers. I used red cotton crochet thread to stitch around the circle. The snowflake (My Favorite Things) was cut from white card stock and then coloured with Crystal Blue ink (CTMH), before attaching it to the edge of the circle panel. A red glitter gem was added to the center of the snowflake.
The white card base was stamped with a sentiment (Two Feet Deep) using Grey Wool ink (CTMH) and then snowflakes (Polar Bear Holiday) were added (CTMH: Crystal Blue ink).
