Penguin Place, Christmas Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Today I thought I would try a different layout. I'm one who basically sticks to my cards opening on the right with the fold on the left. It's a stretch for me to have my cards open on the bottom!!!  But today, my card opens a lot differently. First it opens from the left panel and then it opens the opposite direction on the inside panel.

First I cut sheet of Highland Heather card stock in half. It measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2".  I set the long side on my scoring board. I scored it at 2-1/8" and I turned it around to score the other end at 2-1/8".  I folded those panels inward. They are supposed to touch each other. Mine did not but it doesn't really matter because it won't show.

I textured the front left panel using the "Wintry" 3D embossing folder. It's not a very wide folder but it was more than wide enough for that panel. 

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock for the inside and I taped it in place.

Then I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Night of Navy card stock and taped the right side to the right side panel, leaving a sliver of a border.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Penguin Playmates" 12" x 12" package. I taped that to the Night of Navy piece.

The words are from the "Penguin Place" set and were stamped using Night of Navy ink on Basic White card stock. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. I also punched out the Night of Navy scalloped oval from the same punch. I taped the two ovals together and then I added tape to the left side of the oval and set it in place on the Highland Heather panel.

I stamped a small cap from the "Penguin Place" set using Garden Green ink and I fussy cut it out. I set it in place on the oval, over the left side of the words using a Dimensional.  And that was it, the card was done.

This was a very quick and simple card to make. A perfect way to use up some of that DSP too!!! Wouldn't this be a cute layout for a Halloween card using a spider web die on the left panel?  Hmmm, lots of fun possibilities with this layout!

Sorry I didn't change the orientation of the second photo. After realizing I should have done that I was going to do it but I have had issues with removing photos and added a different one. It messes up the word layout. So just tilt your head a little to the right and you can see the layout better!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Christmas card,
