Home for the Holidays - Polar Bear

Here's another Christmas card for my Hostess Club to make this month. This card is made using the Close to my Heart October Stamp of the month, Home for the Holidays. This great stamp set is only $5.00 with a qualifying purchase.

I used an embossing folder for the background on Glacier Cardstock. Then I sanded the raised portion of the embossing. The core of the CTMH cardstock is white, so when sanded, the snowflakes turn white.
The image and sentiment were stamped using Lagoon Ink then backed with Teal Glitter Paper. The scarf was stamped again with Ruby Ink.

I stamped two candy canes with ruby ink then added stripes of red glitter to the, as well as some to the red scarf. 

I added another element of red with the strip of red shimmer trim and three shimmer dots. 

The rosy cheeks were colored with the Tender Pink Shinhan Alcohol marker, then lightened them with the colorless blender.
