Christmas Card Club #13: Penguins

Hello there! I'm back with another batch of Christmas cards. This festive collection is for the Christmas Card Club and our talented Carol of CM Designs's theme of choice is "Penguins". I decided to make a few simple mini cards to go with pressies. These gift cards measure 4"x4" and I'm sticking with traditional Crimbo colours.

The penguin is from CBS Let It Snow. The greeting is from CBS Mini Banners. I'm going for a snow globe look by placing the banner at the bottom of the die-cut circle. I've also stamped little snowflakes around the penguin using VersaMagic Sea Breeze and for the snowflakes on the card front I used VersaMark for a tone-on-tone effect.

Penguin: VersaFine Onyx Black; Accessories & Greeting: VersaColor Scarlet.
Embellishment: green bling

Penguin: VersaFine Onyx Black; Accessories & Greeting: VersaMagic Tea Leaf.
Embellishment: red bling

On the inside I stamped the greeting from CBS Signature Christmas in
VersaColor Cardinal and Memento Pine.

Ok... I only managed 2 for now but I'll be making a few more of these ... fingers crossed! 

A few challenges for these little guys:

  10. I love these little cards Asha, please don't think me rude ('cos I know your sense of humour is like mine) but I think he looks like a penguin with an ASBO - if you see what I mean. As soon as I saw him and his twin I had to smile. He is still cute though.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
