We’re Sponsoring The Poodles Parlour!

Hey, would you like another chance to win some more gorgeous digital images from Bugaboo Stamps?  Just head on over to The Poodles Parlour where we will be sponsoring their challenge this week, and the amazing prize is 7 digi’s of your choice, from Bugaboo Stamps! The theme is “Animal Antics”.  I was also lucky enough to get to work with one of the images from the Poodles Parlour, and it’s a cute little Polar Bear.  I found a tutorial on Paper Craft Planet for a Stand-Up card, and decided to give it a go!

Polar Bear  1

This is the card when it is closed up, and below is when the card is opened and the image stands up.

I colored the image with copics, and then I cut it out.  I used a Christmas embossing folder by Cuttlebug for the background.  I also used purple ink to stamp snowflakes on the green card stock.  I was quite surprised how quickly this card came together.  I will definitely be doing more of these cards.

I hope you will enter the challenge this week.  We look forward to seeing your cards or projects.  Good luck everyone!
