This is my entry for the My Favorite Things Superstar 2020 Clean and Simple Genius category. I trimmed a top folding piece of copic-friendly Neenah Solar White 80 lb cardstock 1/4 in smaller than a standard A2 piece.
I centered the stamp (MFT Polar Bear Pals) a little high of the center and stamped in Black Tuxedo Momento ink using a stamp positioning tool (mine is a Stampin Up Stamparatus). I opened the card and stamped the bear in the exact same spot inside the card. I also stamped the inside and outside sentiments at this time.
I used the matching bear die and a circle die to
partially die cut the opening on the front. Inside, I added the bucket of fish, then used post-its to mask the bear and fish. Next, I made a mask for ground by cutting a scrap piece of paper with the MFT snowy hill die-namics. I taped the hill mask in place then inked the background with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin, and Picked Raspberry. I peeled off the masks, then colored the images in copic markers.
