Today I'm excited to share the 1st of my cards using a fabulous new collection from Craft Consortium called 'Polar Playtime' (in partnership with Helz Cuppleditch). The collection has just landed on the Craft Consortium website and in craft retailer. It will be launched on Create & Craft TV in the New Year (tbc). The products will also be available to buy here in the UK and in the USA. The collection has the most adorable polar bears and penguins enjoying the snow and having fun. The colours are so pretty, in pinks and aqua and green. The collection contains fabulous 3 x A6 stamp sets, a 12" x 12" paper pad, a decoupage set, wooden shapes and embellishments. You have to check it out!!
For my card today I have used the 'BFF' stamp set and some of the paper from the pad. I used Copics to colour the images in with.
The links to the products are listed below, or you can also go to the Craft Consortium's website using this link here and sign up for an update to this launch and any future product launches.
I covered the front of a 6" x 6" card blank with a piece of paper from the Polar Playtime pad, leaving a slim border around the edge. Next I die cut a piece of blue patterned paper from the pad into an inverted square and stamped the sentiment in the top right corner.
I die cut a piece of white colouring card into an inverted square the same size as the previously cut patterned paper. Next I stamped the penguins towards the bottom of the card, and then drew iceberg shapes above the penguins and cut them out. Blue Copic pen was added around the edge of the icebergs, and then across the centre to create an icy horizon line. The penguins were then colour in with Copic pens. The coloured in scene was then glued over the top of the blue patterned paper to form the sky. The completed scene was added to the die cut mirror mat, and attached to the front of the card blank using funky foam.
To complete the card I added 4 of the enamel dots in each corner, and a splash of glitter to the snowy areas.
