Penguin Place, Santa's Delivery, Christmas Card, 2022 Stampin' Up!

When I had opened up my "Penguin Place" set the other day I noticed that I had a penguin in it that was already punched out and the white part was not only punched out but taped to the body. So I thought I'd use it on today's card, somehow! 

First the penguin needed eyes, a beak and feet. I stamped the eyes using black Memento ink. The beak was stamped using Crushed Curry ink and the feet were punched out using Crushed Curry card stock. I glued the feet in place since they were kind of tiny for taping.

Using Garden Green ink, I stamped and then fussy cut the hat and scarf. I glued the hat on the head and the scarf under the neck. 

I took out my "Santa's Delivery" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and I found some scraps to use up. The Poppy Parade strip measures 5-1/2" x 1-1/2". The Garden Green layer behind it measures 5-1/2" x 1-3/4". I taped the two together and set them aside. 

The polka dotted paper measured 1-3/4" x 3-1/2" and the Garden Green layer measured 2" x 3-3/4". I taped the two pieces together.

The strip with the words measured 1" x 4" and the Garden Green layer measured 1-1/4" x 4-1/4".  Before taping them I stamped the words from the "Santa's Delivery" set using Real Red ink. I should have uses Poppy Parade but I wasn't paying attention. 

I die cut a 1-5/8" Basic White circle and a Garden Green scalloped circle just a little bit larger from the "Layering Circles" die set. Before I taped the two circles together I took my Blending Brush and lightly scrubbed on some Garden Green ink. I needed to tone down the background of that circle a little.

Now I was ready to assemble the card. I taped the dotted piece in place first, making sure the top, right and bottom were close to equal distance apart. Then I added the Poppy Parade strip about 1/2" from the fold. 

The word strip was added next and it's about 1-1/4" from the bottom edge. The scalloped circle was then taped in place. The penguin was set in place using Dimensionals and I had found a little tree in the stamp set that was all cut out and just sitting there, so I glued it to the penguin. And the card was done

This was a very fun card to make. I love layers and this card sure does have lots of them!

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