A fun blog that does a weekly challenge, Flaunt It Fridays, is featuring the bear peeking
So how did I make this?...well all the papers are scraps from my stash. In fact, the dark brown is some textured paper I have had for years (over 15 years!) that at one point was used as a folder for my teaching files. All the bear and can cuts were done at 3 inches. The background layer was run through the cuttlebug using the leafy branch folder. The orange ribbon I picked up at Joannes after Halloween on sale but I don't recall the brand. I hand wrote the words using a Bic Mark*It fine point marker in the color Harvest Orange. (love the set, so many colors it was easy to find just the right match!) I added the eyes and noise with the dark brown marker from the same Bic Mark*It set and the mouth is part of the die cut. I inked the edge of the green background paper lightly with ColorBox fluid chalk in tangerine.border punch, and lightly inked the fancy edge using the tangerine ColorBox chalk. The words "can't wait to see you" are written with the same Harvest Orange Bic Mark*It marker on a punch out of the scrap paper. I used the Fiskars cameo appearance squeeze punch and again, inked the edges with the tangerine chalk.
Now to find an envelope and write a brief note to my sis. I might even make it in time for today mail pick-up!
