Penguin Place, Penguin Playmates, Christmas Card, 2021 Holiday Catalog

I was so excited to get this penguin set. I have always been fond of penguins from when I was a child and saw the cartoon with Chilly Willy.  How could you not like penguins after that. Now I have never encountered one to know if my fondness could fail upon meeting. You know, like with camels. They look sweet and soft but they will spit on you.  Not so fond of them anymore. I'd never been spit on by one but have been warned plus I've seen signs that say to stay behind a line or you could get spit on.  How rude!! ( I mean the camel, not the sign! LOL).  Okay, I found today's card on Pinterest. You can see the original card here.

I liked the look of this card not only because of the cute characters but because of that dotted Designer Series Paper (DSP).

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.

I took two different pieces of the DSP from the "Penguin Playmates" 12" x 12" package and I die cut them with the largest stitched rectangle die. I die cut them both at the same time. I marked the top left about 1" on the side and 3/4" on the bottom right.  With both pieces still together, I cut them from pencil mark to pencil mark. I did this so the lines would match up when the piece was put together.  I also die cut another stitched rectangle from Basic White card stock. I needed something to tape the DSP to. I taped the striped piece on the bottom and the dotted piece on the top. I added Dimensionals to this piece and I set it in place on top of the card base.

I fussy cut the bear and penguin from the "Penguin Playmates" DSP that I had gotten free for placing a $50 order. I set the bear in place first using Dimensionals and then the penguin was set in place taking care not to put any Dimensionals on the side where it is laying over the bear.

I changed the word piece. I stamped the words from the "Penguin Place" set using Misty Moonlight ink and I punched them using the "Double Oval" punch.

I also punched the scalloped piece from the same punch using Misty Moonlight card stock. I taped the two ovals together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the card. And that was it. The card was done.

This was a very fun and easy card to make. I need to turn on a movie and do some serious fussy cutting so I have the characters all ready to go to make more cards later.

Thank you SO very much for stopping by to see this cute Christmas Card,
