polar bear thank you..

I've seen a few cards around lately with polar bears made out of punches so I had to try it myself! Here's how mine turned out. Isn't it adorable? I started with a Kraft paper card base and then used a piece of brocade blue for the sky. I stamped the snowflakes from the Patterned Pines set and then made the snowbank by cutting a piece of white the same size as the blue and tearing it and sponging the edge.

The bears are all made from punches. For the big bear I used the Wide Oval Punch for the body and the 1 3/8 inch circle punch for the head. For the ears I used two 1/2 inch circle punches and for the nose I used the large oval punch and then cut it to look like a nose. The little black circle was made using a circle handheld punch.

For the smaller bear I did pretty much the same except used smaller punches. The body is the large oval, the head is the 1 1/4 inch circle and the snout is the small oval cut to look like a nose. I used the same punches for the noses and ears. Then I drew on eyes with a black marker.

The sentiment "thanks so much" is from the Trendy Trees Stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed the cute bears! I love punch art!
