Snowman Season, Penguin Playmates, 2021 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Today's card is super easy and quick to make. I like to have cards like that now and then, plus you can use some of you DSP!! I'm trying to "Stop the Hoard!" LOL  I found this card on Pinterest and I did change it a little. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Fresh Freesia card stock. The sheet was cut in half on the 8-1/2" side. After it was cut it measured 4-1/4" x 11". I scored mine at 5-1/2" and folded it. I usually use my scoring board to score my cards in half. I like to make sure I get a straight fold.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Evening Evergreen card stock for the layer.

Then I cut a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Penguin Playmates" 12" x 12" package. Then I cut that piece at 3". The larger part will be at the bottom and the back of this smaller piece will be at the top.  I taped this to the Evening Evergreen piece and it was ready for the words. Once the words were stamped the piece was taped to the card base. 

I did not have the same words as the original card so I went looking in my sets for something that was large enough to use in that space. I found these in the "Snowman Season" set and I stamped them using black Memento ink.

A 1" x 4" strip of Evening Evergreen was cut for the wide layer. Then I cut a 3/4" x 3-7/8" strip of Basic White card stock and the thinner Evening Evergreen layer was cut 1/2" x 3-7/8".  I colored this thinnest strip using Wink of Stella for some sparkle. I had colored mine after I had taped it to the card. After I had taped it, the piece looked like it needed something.  The Wink of Stella sparkle was perfect.  

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock was added to the inside of the card and it was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. It's fun, bright and cheery too!

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