Using from the HCD1-7120 Fleur Border Basics, diecut opposing borders from 2 1/4 x 6 and 1 1/2 x 6" pieces of green paper to create 2 small opposing hills.

For the small bear, use Peanut Brittle and Rich Cocoa ink. Use a soft touch of Rhubarb Stalk on bears' cheeks, tongue and bottom of paws. Use Rich Cocoa on bear’s nose.

Before attaching bears, dab some Peanut Brittle onto card to create the illusion of ground where you’ll place them. Shape everything and use glue and dimensional adhesive to attach onto card as pictured. Use Dries Clear glue to add a touch of gold glitter onto card as desired. Attach a touch of Crystal Lacquer onto bears eyes.
