My card features the new Toyland Bear set.   

I used the Copics on Flocking technique to create this fuzzy brown bear.  I popped it up over the original image, along with the bow and ball.  This gave great dimension to this image.

The card front was created by stamping the pine in the left corner, extending across the top and part way down the left side.  I used two different colors of green ink.  After stamping I used a die from Spellbinders’ Mix N Match Ornaments set to create a window.  Then this piece was run through an embossing folder and lightly sponged with ink.

The sentiment was heat embossed with Firecracker Red EP inside a tracing of the ornament window.  Then the branch was stamped around the edges.  This piece was popped up behind the window.   

This was layered on a piece of red cardstock that edged with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Christmas Fire EP.  All of this was layered on a piece of green plaid and added to a white card base.

I used the Glittered Ribbon technique to create the bow from 1/8” Tear-ific Tape and Gypsy Red Velvet glitter.  Then small jewels from Mon Ami Gabby Red Diamond Mesh were added to the card front with Dimensional GlueYou can find detailed directions to make this card in the SNS gallery here.

Don't forget to leave a comment with each Designer to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  We love reading your comments and hope we have inspired you as well.  If you absolutely cannot leave a comment for some reason, please email with your comment and the name of the blog or Designer you are commenting about.

Last month the winner came from April's blog.
Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize winner this month?

Marie, What a fun card! I'd like to reach in and feel all the flocking you used on the bear and toys! The pine needle background makes me think Toyland Bear is tucked just under the edge of the tree because the bear and toys are popped out! Thanks for sharing your bright fun card!
