Polar Bear Birthday

Hello friends, Thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a whimsical card to share with you today.  I was asked to make a card for someone whose daughter loved Polar Bears - and to be quite honest, with the overnight temperatures here at the moment - it was not hard to 'get in the zone'!

I have cut/embossed the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Swirl Frame Etched Dies On the Wings of Love Collection by Joanne Fink using the Platinum™ 6 Die Cutting And Embossing Machine  and navy card stockI love using this frame - it is so versatile, from elegant to whimsical or anything in between - and we love that - right!!

I have used Little Birdie Crafts Dot Stencil and Sparkle Paste - Whipped Cream to create a sparkling background for the Polar Bear.  The Swirl Frame has been glued to the card front.

The Polar Bear has been printed and lightly coloured, a birthday hat from the Little Birdie Crafts Chalk Printed Birthday Bash Handmade Embellishments, then popped up onto the textured background using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The balloons from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ella-Fant Etched Dies My Little Red Wagon by Debi Adams have been cut/embossed then the blue balloon has been glued to the side of the frame, the yellow balloon has been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The sentiment and recipients name have been adhered to the frame and a coat of Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer has been applied.
