Your The Perfect Catch Polar Bear Fishing Die Cut Valentine Card Idea

Happy Valentine's Day crafty friends! I wanted to share a cute little card I created with one of the cutest cottage cutz dies!
It's the perfect card for my hubby for Valentine's day. He is indeed the perfect catch and he is all mine!

I started by cutting out and assembling all my pieces. For the cutie patootie polar bear, I cut all his pieces out in white cardstock. I then used some markers and chalks to give the pieces some color.

My card base is a standard A4 side fold card from some standard white cardstock. I used some cute patterned papers for the card base as well as for a mat for the scallop stitched rectangle mat as pictured.

Here is a closer look at the sweet little polar bear. He is holding his little fishing pole and he has one little fish on the hook. That fish I made extra sparkly with a touch of Stickles glitter glue.
I also used some of the glitter to color the water hole. The photo doesn't show the sweet little sparkle.

Here's a closer look at the cute little fish and you can also see a variety of the stitched hearts I cut out in a variety of patterned papers. I also used one of the arrows and one of the pieces from the retro alphabet set to make the arrow head look extra large.

here is a closer look at my layered sign. I layered one of the shapes from the Retro Alphabet die set onto one of the black scallop stitched dies. I then used another one of the arrows in the same retro alphabet set and wrote the words: you're, the and perfect. The perfect arrow points to the letters....

CATCH!  The letters are from the retro alphabet set. I cut them in white like the other pieces and then used the same marker color that I used on my little polar bear to color the letters in. I like doing this so that I can get the same colors on my project without having to try and have that particular color paper on hand. I have so many pieces of patterned paper and they are all from different manufacturers and the colors are so varied. This is the easiest, most economical way I have found to craft with a variety of color palettes.
