Polar Bear Holiday Thank You Card

Don't forget to say thank you for all those great gifts you received this Christmas!  I made some of these cute wintery looking thank you cards this weekend.  They work well for a Christmas thank you, but the theme is more winter, so it's not over the top for those of you (like ME), who are done with all the Christmas-themed decorations for another year. 
I started by stamping the polka dots on to the card base with CTMH Grey Flannel ink (retired). 
I used this background stamp from Inkadinkado--one of my favorite background images.
Next I cut the B&T paper from CTMH's "Frosted" paper pack.  I edged it with grey ink.
I punched a row of icicles across the top using a Martha Stewart punch (shown above) and added a row of frosty swirls from Recollections called "Glitter on a Roll."
Then I attached the B&T paper to the card base.  I used Scor-Tape, my favorite for cardmaking.
I stamped one of the polar bears from CTMH's stamp set "Polar Bear Holiday" onto White Daisy cs and colored it with Copics.
I've shown the colors I used in the photo above.  I like to outline my images with light grey. 
I attached the polar bear with dimensional adhesive to make it pop up.  I added CTMH Stardust Glitter Gel to the icicles (shown half done in this photo) and a little iridescent bling to the bear's stocking hat.
On the inside, I added a simple "Thank You" so I have lots of room to write.
I used CTMH's retired stamp set "Fringed Phrases" (as you can tell, it's a well-used set).
Here's the finished card again:
I love the colors, and the stamp set would work great for any winter themed project.  It's not limited to just Christmas.  To order your own Polar Bear Holiday stamp set, or any of the other current CTMH products used in this project, shop HERE.
