Even Polar Bears Need A Little Cocoa

I decided to try making the bear from the Two Scoops Rice Hot Cocoa Set into a polar bear. Even though he's used to cold environments, he needs a little cocoa too.. right? Because he looked so cool and frosty, I decided to use my new Martha Stewart Snowflake corner punch around him. My friend Debi taught a class using this technique- you can use any corner punch and it will work!
To keep it simple, I used regular cardstock and ran it through my snowflake embossing folder for texture. I didn't want the background to overpower the image.
Here's a close up of the bear. I must say that choosing to do a polar bear was a lot less coloring!
