Hi There! Today I’d like to share a Christmas Card I made using Top Hat Penguin – RLF005 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), Trumpet Penguin – RLF006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Flute Penguin – RLF002 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). Musical Wishes – GLL014 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) was chosen for the sentiment. I just love these adorable penguins and couldn’t resist putting them all together to create a musical penguin parade. LOL!
To make my card this week, I used Recollections – White cardstock for the base card which is 7.25″ x 7″. I scored the paper at 3.5″ to create the dimensions of 7.25″ x 3.5″. The red background was cut to the same size using Crafter’s Companion Luxury Cardstock – Red. The musical notes layer was cut from Craftsmart – Classic Village at 7″ x 3.25″. The snowy background was die cut to the same size in length using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. I used My Creative Time – Tall Frame Dies, My Creative Time – Tall Frame Layers in order to achieve this. Once the snowy background paper was die cut, I tore along it in order to create the illusion of white snow drifts along the top of the snow. I adhered all of the layers with double-sided tape. Using my large Misti, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.
I stamped all of the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Misti and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The images were then all coloured in with Copic markers and die cut using my Brother Scan and Cut machine. Then I ran all of the images through my Xyron Creative Station to make them all stickers. I placed them on the card and then used Stickles – Diamond to create some snow drifts. Clear – Wink of Stella was added to the Candy Cane to make it sparkle and also to all of the leaves and holly on the hats.
To complete the card, I edged all around the scene with Stickles – Sea Glass.
