Mr. Penguin Says Thank You!

I made a few Christmas cards but pretty much just sent out a Costco photo card which I'll share in a day or two.  I used to make 50-75 cards but then I realized I really enjoyed getting photo cards especially from people I don't see often.  Once I had grandchildren I thought the photo cards were such much fun to brag with send.

I don't know why I'm telling you about that except to say that I still have some cute Christmas-y or wintery stamps that I wanted to use and decided....well, hey....I can make you some thank you cards!

I brought out this little Winter Penguin set from Papertrey Ink that I picked up last year and thought would be so cute on a simple little card.  I do have the matching dies.  And I find by using my Stampamajig (why did it take me so long to get one of those handy dandy tools?!) it's pretty easy to line things up.

Ditto for the snowflakes!  I made my background with some Distress Ink and used some Frisket film to make my little snow banks.  Nothing better than taking a simple white sheet up paper and making your own background.
Here's a closeup albeit a bit blurry!  Sorry about that!  As you can see I blinged it up by adding gems to the snowflakes and for the penguin's eyes.  The sentiment is also from Papertrey Ink.
Christmas is just around the corner.  My 3 year old grandson is oh-so-ready!

Happy Crafting!


  1. I like the way the Penguin & snowflakes pop off the paper. Do not know what Frisket film is.
