Cute poem by Ilan Shamir.
I used plain white card stock which I cut into a 6.5" x 10" card. I then figured out where the approximate middle of the card was and then ran it through my printer to add the poem to the front. Then I ran the card through my Cricut using the "camp out" cartridge and cut a bear "shadow" out of the front of the card directly below the poem. This was a little tricky getting things to line up, but I think it is pretty good. I then cut out a light brown bear "shadow" and then another bear "original," which game it the cut outs for the bottom bear to show through. I then figured out how to mount the brown bear so that it shows through the cut out bear hole on the front. Something new to try, haven't done this before, but I think for this particular card it came out pretty darn good.
For the envelope I didn't want to have a white envelope, so I made an envelope out of blue card stock. I then glued to the front the white bear that I had cut out of my card, and then wrote with a gold pen, our friend's name on the front of the envelope. Go Bears!
