Polar Bear Sleigh Ride

It's September 1st and that means it's time for the new Seasons of Celebration release from High Hopes Rubber Stamps AND a new Fall/Halloween challenge! What a great way to start the month - some fun, cute new winter/Christmas themed stamps! 

My card features "Polar Sleigh" from the new release. How much fun are these two having jumping snow drifts on their sleigh! We had a hill we used to love to jump with our crazy carpets........and the landing wasn't always soft! 

I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and hand fussy cutting it out leaving a thin white edge. I left some solid white parts because these cuties are mounted on the card using a mini action wobble so they move and wiggle every time the card is moved. I added some snow banks cut out using a stitched hills die, trees in the background, and some icicles to help create my winter scene. Some twine and a sentiment stamped directly on the snow finish off my card.
