Merry Christmas from Bitty Bear Pocket Shaker Card


Hello Everyone!

Since I am doing a Holiday Card Series on my YouTube Channel I thought it would be fun to create a card for this weeks MFT's Card Sketch Challenge 358 and I just barely made the deadline😨 
Here is the sketch.

My initial plan to create a spinning bear that sat on top of a snow shaker pocket, but that didn't work out as I didn't leave enough room.  Even still I am really happy with the results. This card was actually quite easy to make and would have taken me less time if I hadn't planned for something different.

I used my Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink to create the fun patterned paper and even inked the Merry Christmas Circle Die with it to ensure the color matched.

As you can see I have added a mirrored image to the reverse side of the bear, giving the inside of the card a nice finished look.  To create the mirrored image, I used a mirror image stamp that unfortunately has now been retired 😔

Here is a closer look at the finished front panel. In person the card has so much shimmer, it's so difficult to see here but the stenciled polka dots are so pretty and they so much detail to the top of the card.
