Christmas in February Part 5

The next sheet of die cuts in the Hunkydory kit I've been using (Cute Christmas) has these adorable polar bears!  Once again I got 4 cards from this sheet & the coordinating card stock - with some left over.  First up is another interlocking gate fold card. 

For this first one, I made a card base from glittered card stock.  I then attached a greeting to the picture and attached that to just the right side of the card.  The frame was attached to just the left side of the card.  

Here's the inside:

For the inside, I cut pieces of coordinating card stock (making good use of the swirly corner embellishment and border).  I also added a couple more die cuts from the kit.  When the card is completely closed, it looks like this:

This next card is done in a similar way, but the "picture" is another piece of that coordinating card stock cut so the swirl is focal. 

The card base itself was some heavy silver paper.  I matted inside & out with the lavender sparkle paper called Glitzy (DCWV).  To the focal, I added a couple of die cuts (one from 2016 Christmas Sentments) and silver outline stickers to frame it.  This was attached to just the right side of the card.  A coordinating frame was attached to just the left. When completely closed, the card looks like this:

Next up is a more traditional card made on a glitter card stock base.  The focal was cut from the 2nd sheet of coordinating card stock.  I simply added outline stickers to frame it and a sentiment from 2016 Christmas Sentiments (also from Hunkydory).

The inside was another piece of hte same card stock, framed with the same outline stickers and embellished with a coordinating tag.

The last card from this set was put a pastel green card base.  I chose to add a bit of extra to the frame by adding outline stickers so the frame was a bit wider.  I also added outline stickers to the sides of the border to finish it off.  A coordinating tag completes the front of this card.

For the inside I took a piece of green vellum & embossed it.  I added more of the border pieces (along with outline sticker pieces on the ends) and a couple of coordinating embellishments:

That's 4 more cards, so I now have 21 - more than the minimum they said this kit would make and I haven't even used half of it!
