White Christmas polar bear on an iceberg

Here’s another project from my Christmas workshop at the weekend. It features a polar bear on an iceberg, where he belongs, not under a tree, where he doesn’t. (Don’t start me off.)


Again, I made two designs so people could choose. I stamped off the Chalk Lines which isn’t as easy with photopolymer as it is with rubber, but the mottled effect worked ok, I think, because it’s suppose to represent the sea. There’s a lot of tearing on this card and that Glimmer Paper doesn’t half put up a fight! 


The sequins are stuck down with my homemade glue dots, as the ones we can buy from Stampin’ Up!® are a little too large for this job. I simply dotted Tombow adhesive onto some waxed paper and allowed it to dry. This does take several hours, so you have to prepare ahead.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
