Today I was hunting in the Forest of Woe with my direwolf, Lycan when we heard some singing come from the depths of the forest. Curious and over confident with my familiar by my side, I headed deeper into the woods to investigate. As I neared the source, I could hear that the song was a popular Winter Festival carol. Lycan started to growl deep in his throat, apparently not a fan of the tune. I shushed him and crept closer. In a small clearing I spotted a choir of bears, singing away.
This card was created for the Creative Card Crew “Teddy Bear Picnic” challenge that is happening now. Stamp Fairy is sponsoring the challenge, so come join in the fuzzy fun for a chance to win a $10 gift voucher to their store!
I started this card by colouring the Stamp Fairy image using Prismacolors. I cut out the window and used some tulle and thread to fashion some curtains. It looked a little odd with no rod, so I cut a chopstick in half using a butcher knife as my sister cowered in fear, ready to call 911 should I injure myself, to make a little curtain rod. I stamped the banner using the Lawn Fawn “Bannerific” set and then stamped the sentiment with the Bug Bites “Mistletoe” set. For the background I used some gold coloured music note paper that I’ve been saving for a couple years. I don’t know what it is with me and saving music note paper. I love it and keep buying it, but love it so much I never want to cut it...go figure…
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using The Greeting Farm “Holiday Blessings” set. I added some music notes with the Lawn Fawn “Winter Sparrow” set.
Those same music notes also got stamped on the envelope, tying this musical symphony together and earning me +300 musical exp points and leveling up my bard class skills.
These bears will sing their way into the following challenges:
I crouched by a tall pine tree, my boots covered in snow, listening to the bear choir. They were actually quite good. Their festive music imbued me with the Great Winter Festival spirit, and I abandoned my hunt, much to Lycan’s dismay, rushing back to the Guild Hall and my crafting chambers to create some holiday cards.
