Snowflake Penguins

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I know lots of people are on Half Term holidays this week. Our drive is very nearly finished. I must say it is looking very good it is a shame about the rest of the house. Oh well we will just have to save for the next job to be done.

I had a bit of a walk yesterday and I had every intention of being good but I just couldn't resist the Snowflake Penguins die set that came with issue 152 of Papercraft Essentials magazine. When I had finished the card I had been asked to make for a 90th birthday,  I had a little play.

I used some glitter card to make one of the mats and I embossed the top mat with the Falling Snow Embossing folder from Creative Expressions. I added a line of ribbon. 

The penguin, the baby penguin, the fish and a piece of holly come in the die set. I flipped the one of the penguin die cuts so the adults could face each other. The blue snowflakes in the background were cut with the penguin. 

I will be making some more cards with this die set our family is rather fond of penguins. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie

  12. Brilliant card Jackie, these dies are fabulous.
    I always think house DIY is a bit like painting the Forth road brigde, everytime you do something it makes the rest of the house look in need of repair.
