Ice Skating Bear Snowflake card

We are expecting a snowstorm so I guess winter isn't over yet. After all, the groundhog did see his shadow!
Today for my first post for My Scrap Chick, I made a quick little winter card using "Ice Skating Bears"  and " Gentle Snowflake Card."

Materials List

Cardstock from Recollections in two shades of purple
"Purple Flower" print cardstock from Core'dinations
Glitter Cardstock in light purple and white from Recollections
Plaid, aqua, black, gray and pink cardstock scraps
small purple gems
foam tape and adhesive

I made two copies of the card base, one in dark purple and one in light purple. I layered the dark one inside the light one to give the two toned effect.  The snowflake was cut from  "Purple Flower" by Core'dinations, then I traced it on purple glitter paper by Recollections and cut it out. The two snowflakes were layered one on top of the other, then mounted onto the card base with foam tape. Tiny snowflakes were punched out with a punch. Small purple gems were added to some of the snowflakes. 


The Ice Skating Bear was cut from white glitter paper at  3 inches. The scarf was cut from a plaid scrap and the hat brim and skates were cut from an aqua blue scrap. The different layers were attached with foam tape to add dimension. 

I hope you liked my little card. If you did, I'd love to hear from you.
