Craft Consortium - Polar Playtime #5

Hi guys 💜
I'm back again to share another of my cards using the 'Polar Playtime' collection from Craft Consortium. I will be sharing the last of my samples from this collection in the next day or so, then I will be sharing some new goodies with you. The collection is available on the Craft Consortium website and in good craft retailers both here in the UK and in the USA. As previously mentioned the collection has the most adorable polar bears and penguins and 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!

So today I have made a bauble card using the seal pup from the 'Make A Splash' stamp set, and the snowflake stamp from the 'BFF' set to create the paper. I used distress inks to create the background sky inside the bauble.

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 die cut a piece of pale blue card and stamped lots of snowflakes all over it, then added a little white pencil to highlight them. The card was then attached to the front of a 5" x 7" card blank, leaving a thin border around the edge. 

I die cut the bauble outer frame 3 times from strong white card, then stacked and glued them together to create depth. The back panel of the bauble was then die cut and 4 different distress inks were blended onto it. When the inks were dry, watered down white and black chalk paint was flicked over the top to give the illusion of snow. Dots were also added using a white pen.

The seal was stamped onto masking paper and fussy cut out. Next the seal image was stamped onto colouring card stock, and covered with the mask. The sign post was stamped over the top of the seal and the mask was removed. I used a black fineliner to create a horizon line either side of the seal. 

The scene was then die cut out using the bauble back panel. Everything was then coloured in using Copic pens, and everything above the horizon line was fussy cut out. Glitter was added to the snow floor and the sign. 

To Complete The Bauble
The seal and sign post section was glued to the back panel of the bauble (sky), then die cut white snowflakes were glued around the characters. The bauble cap was die cut from silver glitter card and glued into place along with a white ribbon.  Funky foam was added to the back of the bauble and then added to the top section of the card front together with a slim piece of the silver card to create the string.

To finish my card I added a die cut sentiment along with a few blue and white enamel dots.
