After my time away from social media because of illness I'm here to share the 3rd of my cards using the fabulous new collection released by Craft Consortium called 'Polar Playtime' (in partnership with Helz Cuppleditch). The collection has just landed on the Craft Consortium website and in good craft retailers both here in the UK and in the USA. It will also be launched on Create & Craft TV in the New Year (tbc). As previously mentioned the collection has the most adorable polar bear and penguin images - the collection contains fabulous 3 x A6 stamp sets, a 12" x 12" & 6" x 6" paper pad, a decoupage set, wooden shapes and embellishments. Definitely check it out!
For today's card I have used the 'Polar Playtime' stamp set and created a little snowy scene behind her using some dies from my stash. Hope you like it. x
I've added direct links to the products below, or you can also go direct to the Craft Consortium's website using this link here, and sign up for updates on any future product launches.
Here's What I Did
I stamped and coloured the penguin and her skating boots with Copic pens, and fussy cut them both out.
I die cut 1 x scalloped circle and 1 x stitched inverted scalloped circle frame from strong white card this will form the top and base of the scene topper. Next I die cut 1 x circle from the same patterned paper used in the background, and 3 x circles from the white card used previously. Using the white circles I cut 1 x tree border and then 2 x sloping hill making one smaller than the other. To create the snowy scene I glued the pattered paper circle in the centre of the scalloped circle to create the sky, then added the tree border and sloping hill. To finish the topper I added the inverted scalloped frame over the top of the scene, and added the penguin and her boots using foam pads. Funky foam was added to the back of the topper and then attached to the card front.
To complete the card I added small gems and sequins near to the sentiment.
Tip - when you create scenes like this, always used the same white card otherwise the shades might be slightly off and look odd.
