Anchor Bear

Hello friends, I hope today finds you all doing well.  Today was a beautiful day here in the western foothills of Maine.  The sun was shining, a breeze was blowing and the temperatures were just right.  Took a trip out of town for a doctor appointment. All went well, so came home and rexed by putting a card together.

For this card, I am not sure there is a name for the style, but it is the first time I made it and used my own measurements cause I could not find instructions.  I took a, 8 and 1/2 by 7 piece of card stock and scored at 2 inches and then 2 and 3/4 inches on the 8 and 1/2 inch side and then flipped it over and scored the same thing on the opposite end.  then folded up and down on one end and the same n the opposite.  I then matted the two two inch ends with Close To My Heart Pacifica paper and Seaside.  and then I mated the center piece the same way.   Embellishments are CTMH Seaside assortment, retired and the canvas buttons which I stamped with an anchor.
And lastly I added the KaDoodle Bug Designs~ Cutie KaToodle  Anchor Bear. 
I hope you like him, I love how it turned out.
