Honestly, my friend Pam does NOT have a thing for polar bears and I KNOW that. So why is this the second polar bear birthday card in a row? She is the victim of timing - I'm thinking holiday characters but I don't want to do anything too "christmasy" for her birthday card so it winds up being polar bears... Last year she got the Coke Bear and this year she gets Chill Bear.
When I gave her the card, she said we could make the polar bears a birthday tradition.
Inspiration came from a tiny gift tag another friend, Mary, had on a package she was about to mail. Spied it and quickly pulled out my camera and snapped a photo just so I could copy it.
Head - wide oval
Body - wide oval turned the other way - seam of the two ovals hidden by scarf
Arms - wide heart to heart
Legs - small oval
Feet - medium oval (is that what they are calling it? - the new one)
Soles of feet - 3/4 inch circle put on a post it note so I could repunch and get kinda an oval
Scarf - wide oval punched next to wide oval hole (3 times to get pieces of scarf)
Nose - like soles of feet - add white gel pen highlight
Ears - word window ends
Draw on eyes and ear markings.
