Snow Time Bear Christmas card

Christmas card featuring 2 Cute Ink Snow Time Bear digital stamp, by Paperesse.

Just so we don't forget it's still winter, our weather Formally Known as Mild, has decided to turn cold. Brrrrr. Which puts me in a Christmas-y kind of mood. I'm trying to be thrifty and use up some stamps and sentiments I printed out probably two years ago and just never got around to coloring. The Snow Time Bear stamp is from 2 Cute Ink, while the sentiment is part of the From the Heart No Snow Birdbrain set (you can see where I used this sentiment with its humorous matching stamp on this Christmas card).

Paper is more from the Christmas Delivery paper pad I wrote about with this Christmas Joy card. It's such pretty paper; I'm enjoying it.

The dies are of the no-brand inexpensive Chinese variety – stitched rectangles and snowflake banner. I measured the size of the smaller inner white rectangle of the die-cut stamp and sentiment, then added 5mm for an extra red layer between the black die-cut and white die-cut.
