I also made it for a friend, she's going through a tough spot right now, so I pulled out the friends furrever and the polar bear pals, they both have images where critters are hugging, but I decided on the polar bear pals as they're sitting down and I wanted them to sit on to of the MFT Hugs die.
I made the card into a shaker card, but diecutting the Hugs from a 140lbs cardpanel, mounted acetate and foamtape and filled the shaker bit with micro diamonds, these are actually pointy, not flat and intended for nail art.
I swiped Distress inks tumbled glass on the cardbase behind the opening for a wintry northpole iceberg feel.
I stamped the images on Crafter's Companion Neenah paper and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers, then had the Scan n cut cut them out.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the same set with Versafine onyx black ink and adhered the second polar bear with tape runner, much like the one on the front.
