Wesley the Polar Bear

Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are off to a good start into the new week. I have another 'icy creations' to show to you. I thought I better post it soon as Spring is not far and no one wants to see Winter creations then anymore ;-) My card shows another of  Memory Box's super cute polar bears. This one is called Wesley Bear. First I stamped the image onto card stock and then cut it out using the matching polar bear die. You can get both, the die and stamp,  HERE from DutchPaperCrafts! For the background I used the Memory Box Birch Background Stamp and some coarse snow glitter from Martha Stewart. I kept the card more simple just decorated with a few paper flowers, ribbon and some cut outs made with the Memory Box Snowflake Corner Die . All the stamps and dies from the Memory Box Polar Bear release are available from Dutch Paper Crafts ! And if you are looking for something particular from Memory Box I'm sure Darlene will

The card I like to show today was published in our Whimsy December Magazine Issue . I used one of the Whimsy Animals, the cute Whimsy Owl. All the Whimsy Animals, Mythical Collection and Kids Collection are on clearance sale HERE. As always  the image was colored using Copic's. DP is from an older Basic Grey Collection called Mellow. I love the earthy colors from that collection. The Elegant Flourish die and the Vines Die Set can be found here: Whimsy Shapeology Dies.
