Thinking Of You Beary Much

A ‘thinking of you’ card with a bear walking thru the oval holding a flower.  Or that was the idea anyway…..*smiles*!

Peggy, I hope your not too disappointed! *smile* 

Somehow or another I got on a roll with dots!  Once you really start looking, dots are everywhere.  I embossed the Whisper White Cardstock with the polka dot EF and then ran a brayer over it with Early Espresso.  The Brown dotted paper is from the Berry Blossoms DSP.  And of course there are dots around the oval, on his paw and centers on the flowers of the ribbon.

Here’s the recipe for the bear:

Ears – 1/2'” circle and the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack (3/8”).
Head – 1” circle and the small oval punch.
Eyes – tear shaped pieces cut from your scalloped oval punch
Nose – any tiny heart shaped punch, mouth was drawn free handed.
Body – 11/4” circle and the inside of his belly was either the 1” or a 7/8” circle punch.  Either would be fine.
Foot – 1/2” circle punch with a tiny heart for the center and tiny dots punch from any punch that you might have on hand that would produce these.  Example:  the dots from your border eyelet punch would work.

The flower is made with the Boho Blossoms Punch and the stem is from the Two Step Bird Punch.  Ribbon was from my stash.

This is off the charts for the cuteness factor! It is like he is climbing out of the card to say hello! Adorable! And I love how you finish off your cards inside!

You put SO MUCH cuteness on your cards that it makes me think they must measure a good 5x7!!! And yet, by your measurements (thank you) it's a regular sized card. Magnificent !!!
