Teddy Bear Christmas Sweets again! AND Black Friday sale!!

I'm having some fun with teddy bears this Christmas!  And what better way to do that than to make a card with them in traditional Christmas colours and trimmings!  I have one of the characters from the new Teddy Bear Sweet clear stamp set, carrying his big load of candy canes; I imagine he's heading to the tree to hang them all on the branches! 
I coloured the teddy with a layer of Copics first.  Then, I went over most of it with coloured pencil to really bring it out.  I masked it off with the new NoFuss Masks from Whimsy - oh my, that makes masking so quick and easy, no fussy cutting your own mask out! I highly recommend because not only are they quick and easy, they also protect really well, and, they are re-useable if you take them off gently enough! You can get about three uses out of each mask!  And there's no sticky residue left on your card.  It's all a win-win!
Anyhoo, once it was masked, I sponged and blended a couple of Oxide inks - Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio, with a tiny dab of Rustic Wilderness for a shadow on the ground under his body.  Then I used the super cute Fadoodle Holly set by Faye, (LOVE you Faye, waving!!) to decorate the corners and border.  I stamped the holly, coloured it, fussy cut it and glued it down in the corners. 
The striped paper came from the digital pack shown below called "I Dream In Christmas"- I had it on my computer screen in my Pages program, and was able to stretch it out to fill the page.   I wanted to do that so I could make the angled layer that you see with the stripes going at a 45 degree angle (so it had to fill the whole page).  I printed it off and trimmed it to fit my card panel. 
Don't forget to take advantage of the Black Friday sale!! Details in the image above!
