My card today features the adorable Penguin Pals from the Pretty Pink Posh November release. When I saw the two skating penguins, it reminded me of the scene in A Muppet’s Christmas Carol, with the penguins’ Christmas skating party. I decided to make a card inspired by that as it’s one of my favourite Christmas movies.
I stamped and coloured the images, using copic markers in warm greys for the penguins, then die cutting them with the coordinating dies. I die cut some of the Pine Sprigs from white glitter card and also some white card, which I then coloured with green copic markers.
For the background, I took a piece of white card cut to the same size as my card base. From this, I die cut a Stitched Window towards the top. Below this, I stamped the sentiment from Penguin Pals in black ink.
I added a soft blend of distress oxides to the card base, then adhered the panel over the top.
Using the positive die cut window piece, I trimmed it down to create two strips. On one, I used some WOW bonding powder and WOW Fab Foil in Ice Blue, to add a skating rink. This is the first time I’ve tried foiling, so I think I need some more practice, but overall I’m pleased with the result.
On the other strip, I embossed it with WOW White Puff Twinkle embossing powder, for a snowy bank.
I adhered both pieces back in to the stitched window on the card, to create my scene. I then added the pine sprigs at the top with liquid glue, and the skating penguins and present with foam tape.
I finished the card with a few jewels from the new Starry Sky mix, placed around the sentiment.
