Snow Bear

Happy Wednesday everyone! This weekend I worked on some cards for the troops. Over on SCS, the WRAK group had a card roundup. They provide 12 challenges, we get to make the cards and then we forward them to OWH (Operation Write Home). This is a great organization. They send blank handmade cards overseas so that our troops have some fun cards to send home to their families.

The 9th Challenge was to use a new technique, Embossed Foil. This was a lot of fun. I will have to say, although I did add some ink to mine, I thought it looked really good with just the foil!

I also got the chance to use the stamp I won from the Copic Challenge forum party. It is adorable, isn't it? I just love bears! Because I wasn't really thinking when I made this card, I added flower soft to the hat and the snow. I'm not sure that this will be considered like glitter and not allowed or if it's ok. It does add a nice bit of texture. I will re-make the card without the flower soft before I send it off. Anyway, I hope this card will brighten someone's day.

Stamps: Bear and Robin (stampavie)
Paper: In the Navy, White (Gina K)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento); Night of Navy Craft (SU)
Accessories: Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Copics, dimensionals, Heavy Duty tin foil, Snowflakes EF, Clear Emboss powder, Polar White flower soft

What an adorable image. The foil does emboss nicely and gives your card a fun finish. Your bow is perfect.
