Penguin Christmas

  Oh my goodness! Have you seen the It's Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas release? So many fun, cute stamps that are perfect to help get your Christmas/winter card mojo going! 

I have a lot of people who love penguins in my life so "Penguin Presents" was a perfect stamp for me to get to create a card with. I have a hard time remembering from year to year which stamp I used on who's card so to have a few new penguin stamps to choose from is perfect in my world. <smile>

I chose to do my take on a Front Flap style card. 

 I stamped my image, coloured it with Copic markers, added some polka dots to his scarf with a white gel pen  and hand fussy cut it leaving a thin white edge. I set him aside and chose some patterned paper from Photo Play to match. I created my card base by cutting some matching card stock to a 5.5" x 5.5" size. 

Next, I cut a quarter of an inch off the outside of the top piece so the plaid background which is actually the inside of the card would show on the front. What I didn't think about is that by doing that, the card actually won't sit to be displayed because there isn't anything there for it it sit on. I decided to continue with my take on the design because I have a few people in my life who display their card laying down - phew! I cut some snowflake paper for the top of the card and added some ribbon and a sentiment. Then I measured my stamp to figure out how big my "flap" needed to be, cut it and added a snowy hill, a snowflake border and my stamped image, glued it to the card base and added the plaid patterned paper.

To finish off the card I stamped a sentiment on the inside on a piece of white card stock and added some enamel dots to the front.
