Let it Snow Bear

Hi, everyone!  Here I am, back with another holiday card!  I'm getting a headstart on next year's cards!  My goal for 2019 is to make at least two holiday cards each month!  I tried it last year but failed miserably so I am determined to stick to it in 2019, and I'm starting immediately!


The adorable bear image is Beccy's Place Winter Stanley.  I used the precoloured version, fussy-cut, popped up on foam tape, and added Star Dust Stickles to his hat pompom.  The gorgeous embossing folder is Apple Blossom Let it Snow.  The Let it Snow Phrase Die is from STAMPlorations.  I finished off the card with a few snowflake sequins from my stash.

I would also like to support the following challenges: A Gem of a Challenge AG 1/3; ABC Christmas Y for Your Favourite Thing (critters on my cards) UE; Beccy's Place December Optional Plants and Flowers UE; Crafty Creations AG 2/2; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Use Word Christmas UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Christmas with Snowflakes UE; Cut it Up New Year's Resolutions (to make my holiday cards all year long, at least two/month - I've already started my 2019 cards - this is the 8th one so far) 1E; Cute Card Thursday AG UE; DL.ART December Linky AG UE 1/d; Double D Let it Snow 3/3; Happy Little Stampers Christmas Optional Snow UE; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; PINspirational AG 5/5; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 1/5; STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge Optional Color Green; STAMPlorations CUTplorations December (I was inspired by the Chrsistmas theme and snowflakes); STAMPlorations Never-Ending Anything Goes Must use STAMPlorations products; The Outlawz Twisted Thursday TT122718AG Twist AG 2/2; Three Amigos Blog Hop Christmas/Winter/ Holidays UE; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5 wk2

That's a beautiful winter card design. I love the bear design too. And, we got snow...that is why I have extended Christmas guests. They hope to get home tomorrow.

My gosh, well! With such an intricate and beautiful embossing folder, you certainly don't need much else! I may have to go look for that one. Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I love how the brightly colored bundled up bear pops off the white background.

Thanks for joining us for our Cut it Up for our New Year’s Resolutions challenge and good luck with your goal!

Great idea to get a head start on your holiday cards Kitty, especially while there's still lot of Christmas feeling in the air. I love the embossing you added to this one, what a fabulous design. I also like the colour scheme you chose, kraft and white always look great together. Well done!
Cheers,
Beccy

Such a cute image and I love the embossed background. Starting holiday cards early will be a must for me too, I sent all mine out this year. Thankfully there is year round Christmas challenges to keep the motivation going.

Such a sweet card and what a fun resolution.
I think when Summer comes you just forget about the holiday cards.
I make lots of cards after finishing mine and have send them out.
This way I have a good start for next year.
My resolution is to clear and clean my craft room! That is hard enough :-)
