Merry Christmas

Hello there my crafty friends!  How about this cute penguin slimline card!  I cut the Slimline Decorative Holly Oval Aperture Trio in white.  I added a frame using the Slimline Stitched Rectangle Frames in white.  I added it with mounting foam.  Next, I found some cute red and white polka dotted paper in my craft stash so I added a piece behind the upper and lower aperture openings.  I cut two penguins from the Penguin Palace die set and added hats, scarfs and a bowtie to them, then added them at different angles to the apertures.  I cut the Merry Christmas in both red and black and shadowed it, then glued it into the middle aperture with a piece of white card backing it.  I cut the North Pole sign and glued it to the right side of the frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 4 1/2"  x  9 " in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. I felt very sad with yesterday's post, she'd a tear or two.
Today you give us cute and a smile, your animal dies are just so lovely you've turned them from a drawing and metal into proper little characters with personalities all of their own and they make the most cheeky cheerful cards to make someone's day lol I need a happy, cute sample today to look at. Sending love and hugs to those that need them xxx

Good Morning Sue and all.
A lovely sweet card today that could bring a smile to almost anyone. The aperture cards are very versatile I think.
Keep your chin up Steph. Remember the good times.

Good Morning Sue. Awwwww how cute are these little Penguins. All your small animals are cute but somehow at Christmas they always look cuter. It's such a lovely card ... and I am 100% certain all the younger members of our families will just fall in love with their own little card ... And even the bigger kids come to think of it. Another winner Sue. Thankyou. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
PLEASE KEEP STAYING SAFE 🙏 🙏 🙏
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds.

Very cheerful card x

Fabulous! I didn’t use the penguin last year (polar bears were my thing in 2020!) so going to get him out this year. As soon as school starts up again I’m making a start on my Christmas cards, there’s been so much inspiration with all the new releases lately, especially the slimline dies.

Hi Sue, so sorry I missed commenting yesterday, I had a very busy day which included a meal out with friends for the first time in 20 months. I adore this very cute card with your gorgeous little penguin and I think the red and white dotty paper is the perfect foil for him.
