Popcorn the Bear

This week's 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is a sketch (I find sketches are great when I want to make a card but my mind has gone blank!).  This card was made by following the sketch and using oddments of Popcorn the Bear papers.

I layered cream script paper (not a Christmas paper, but the colour co-ordinated with Popcorn) onto silver mirri card.  This was then attached to a square card blank.  I die-cut circles from scraps of Popcorn paper and also one from blue snowflake paper (all magazine freebies)  These were attached to silver scalloped mirri circles.  I used Majestic Blue Versafine ink to stamp the sentiment onto the blue snowflake paper - the sentiment is from Hobby Art's 'Christmas Greetings' set.  I used a Woodware snowflake punch to cut two snowflakes from the silver mirri card.  I assembled the card following the sketch layout.  To finish, I used a white Sakura glaze pen to highlight the snowflakes on the sentiment circle.
