Polar Bear Digi by Pattie

   This adorable polar bear in a snow globe is a digi image by Pattie Gomez of Pattie's Creations and my entry for Challenge #81(Christmas Card) at Pattie's Creations Design Blog
    I printed the image on white CS and also on blue.  I removed the globe section from the blue CS with an exacto knife creating the aperture and stamped a few small snowflakes.  Then I secured a piece of clear acetate on the back over the opening. The base was easily paper-pieced with silver glitter paper. 
    After coloring the polar bear image on the white CS, I circled it with 1/8" foam tape.  Next I added some glitter.  Then I secured the blue piece over top creating a real snow globe for on my card.
    I added the sentiment and a few extra snowflakes to a piece of CTMH DP.
    To make the embossed snowflake background, I inked the raised portion of my embossing folder before running the CS through the Cuttlebug.  The ink goes into the debossed part of the snowflakes and gives it great dimension.  
    Then I finished off the card with a five loop bow of silver floss, since I couldn't find my skinny silver ribbon. 

I'll also enter this card in the following challenges:
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge #287 - It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
LEJ Designs Challenge #82 - Christmas is Coming

Well, I better get this posted.  Pattie's Challenge ends shortly.

  2. Well, Debi - You've WOW'd me again! This is gorgeous - I love it! Thanks for detailing the steps. That's so cool how you inked the embossing folder - does the ink wash off the embossing folder? I've never tried it but this looks so impressive. Your bow is beautiful too! I think you've got a winner here!
