Penguin Card

It's time for another challenge at My Craft Spot - our last of 2012!  This one is perfect for those of you who still need to create another Christmas card or two (although please remember that only one entry is permitted per crafter per challenge).  We're making Christmas shape cards.  Here's mine!


This little penguin is from Create a Critter 2.  I used my Gypsy to weld two shadows together (flipping one) to create the card base.  I then simply added the other layers over top of that.  I used a Peachy Keen stamp for the eyes and used some boa for the trim and pompom on the hat.  (I'm quickly getting addicted to boa feathers!!)  I embossed the metallic hat with Cuttlebug's Snowdots folder.


The little tag was cut using Tiny Tags metal dies from My Craft Spot.  The Jolly! is part of a sentiment from My Craft Spot's 'Tis the Season stamp set.


I finished everything off with some cranberry crinkle ribbon - from My Craft Spot - as well as a feather and a little bell.

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see the lovely creations made by my design team sisters - and then link up your own Christmas shape card!

Super cute, especially with all the fuzz on his head. Reminds me of the downy on baby penguins. : )

Hi Kate. Thanks for your message(s) on my blog. I didn't know the rules, and deleted my second entry for last week's challenge. So, I should be good. I enjoy play along, though I seldom win anything...LOL - I do warmly invite you to play along with US at Word Art Wednesday. I'd LOVE to have you share your talents in our challenges at: www.wordartwednesday.blogspot.com
