Thank You BEAR-y Much!

Hi guys, it's my day on the Eyelet Outlet Blog, where I'm showin' off a fun idea inspired by these adorable Eyelet Outlet Winter Animal Brads. I'm planning to use this as a thank you note for some cool holiday gifts I received, but it would work for any wintery occasion.

I love that each packet of Winter Animal Brads contains white bears, brown bears and super-cute penguins! For this card, I've made two of the white bears adornments for a pair of mittens I've constructed from a bit of plaid paper I hand-painted using some of my favorite ColorBurst shades: Pthalo Green, Terre Verte and Turquoise. I used a piece of clipart for the shape, and cut the two mittens back-to-back with scissors so that i'd have a right and left hand to use on my card. I added White Glitter Enamel Dots to the cuffs and a piece of yarn to bump up the texture factor.

A computer generated sentiment and a few white Heart Brads finish off the design. And now I'll just wish you a BEAR-y good day, darlings! ♥♥♥
