Let It Snow Penguin Card

I was going to wait until next weekend to post another project, but I felt like that was just too far away! So since I didn't have any homework that needed to be done, I decided to sit down and make a card. 

Featured in this card are Recollections cardstock from Michael's, cuts from Create-A-Critter, Wild Card, and Winter Frolic, Glossy Accents, and some silver glitter embossing powder.

First I started out with a plain white base card measuring 4x5.5". For the background, I chose a snowflake patterned paper from the Recollections Bright & Jolly paperstack (currently at Michael's). I cut my patterned paper to fit on the front of the base card and used double sided tape to adhere the two together.

Next I took some plain white cardstock and cut out a snowy foreground. And again, I used some double sided tape to adhere it to the card.

Next I cut out my lettering and shapes with my Gypsy and Cricut Expression. From Create-A-Critter I cut the penguin at 2.25". I used black for the base layer, white for layer 1, yellow for layer 2, and red for layer 3. From Wild Card I used the font selection to spell out my words and then melded the letters for each word with the Gypsy. The lettering was cut at 1.5". Lastly, with Winter Frolic, I cut the pine trees at 1.75".

Before putting all the pieces together on the card, I also used a silver glitter embossing powder on the lettering to give it a nice little sparkle.

Finally, I used a glue pen to adhere the lettering and pine trees to the card. I used double sided sticky foam to adhere the penguin to the card. (Sorry that you can't really tell that from the picture!). For the finishing touch I added some Glossy Accents to the penguin's eyes, beak, and feet and also on the pine trees.

And here it is, the final product!

Sorry for the quality of the pictures not being the best. I currently only have a 2 foot by 2 foot space to put my projects together and take pictures of them (darn that tornado for taking my house and crafting space!). But I will eventually have a new crafting room where I will have the proper space and set up to get this stuff done up nice!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest creation!
