Merriest Christmas Wishes

Hi crafters!  I thought it was time for a cute Christmas card!  The Penguin Palace die set came right to mind for it too!  I started this card by cutting the Twinkle Star Background out of Cobalt Blue card.  I used a sticky adhesive sheet onto another sheet of Cobalt blue card and adhered the background to it.  I used Midnight Marine Holographic Glitter on the exposed adhesive.  I cut a wide frame using the Double Stitched Oval and added mounting foam to the back of it.  I cut a hill shape out of a piece of white card with sticky adhesive sheet added to it.  I peeled the backing paper off, then attached the frame to it.  I used Iced Snow on the hill and added the oval frame to it.  I then added the frame over the Twinkle Star background and trimmed away the excess card around it.  I added the frame to a larger piece of white card.  I cut the igloo from the Penguin Palace set and used a blue pencil to shade it.  I added the igloo inside the frame to the right.  I made two cute penguins, adding scarfs, hats, gloves and a bow tie then added them to the edge of the frame with foam tape.  I used the Merriest Christmas Wishes sentiment cut in cobalt blue under the frame on the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, what a lovely sample, love the penguins with their scarfs to keep them warm, and the igloo looks brilliant, I remember seeing you do an igloo on a card on the TV and how you made the brickwork stand out, brilliant.

Stay safe, Healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue and Particraft friends. Lol - this is what children's festive cards are all about, bring on the cuties, these I bought a few weeks ago and I'm waiting for the call to tell me their arctic friends have arrived at the shop, the polar bears then I can hopefully start the order I have, I may also use them for some of the young parents but change it about a little, these are dies that will make me enjoy crafting again as since I had to stop going to market and meeting my market friends my crafting mojo isn't what it was back in February. I love this Sue and what a way to start our Saturday in the UK, cute penguins the perfect inspiration and a big smile 😁

Morning Sue,
I apologise for not commenting yesterday but I couldn't get it to 'send'.
Hopefully I will have more luck today as this is a lovely, cute card. I happen to have these dies so will be definitely trying to replicate this one, with your permission.
I would love to receive a card like this as it's such a happy, smiley one and we all need a little happiness these days.
Hugs xxx Pauline

Good Morning Sue. First of all I apologise for the lack of my comment yesterday. It was my birthday but from the moment I got up until bedtime I never stopped. What a lovely day I had. Very busy even though we are still in quarantine from our holidays.
BUT BACK TO THIS MORNING. Beautiful card Sue I love those little guys and I imagine all the little young ones will love them too. And I love the background Sue. Thankyou. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them this morning. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.
