Polar Bear Merry Christmas

 Susan's CountryScapes - Critters 4 - Bear die is perfect to create either a masculine or a children's Christmas card. 

I created a  stair-step card to show case this beautiful polar bear.  A piece of polka dot Navy blue design paper was attached to the center pane,l then Elizabeth Craft Designs Line Peel-off stickers framed it.  Several layers of snow banks were cut and glued together at the bottom of the card.  The Bear was die cut using Pearlized white card stock.  The nose, ear, eye and toenails were drawn in with a fine line black marker, then gray ink sponged around the outline of the bear.  He was attached with dimensional tape so he is walking up the snow bank. 

 This picture shows the finished card when opened all the way up.  The card stock was cut 12" long by 6" wide. I used a die cut star from Karen Burniston's Christmas Trees Pop Stand and Snowflakes from her Spiral Circle Pull Card.

This is the backside of the finished card.  You can see the stair step cuts.  Over on the right side, you can see the placement of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Stand Up "Snowflake" Helpers, and the Merry Christmas Stand Up Helper. I wanted to use the Snowflake Helpers to hold up the card.  I used the Merry Christmas Stand Up Helper so it could stand up (be dimensional) in front of the snowbank.

 If you didn't want to use the Snowflake Stand Up Helpers, you could just use the Merry Christmas Stand Up Helper, and it would look like this picture.

Here is a side view of the card when placed in the Snowflake Stand Up Helpers.  This card will fold down flat for mailing.
