  • 6x6" card blank
  • white digi cardstock
  • tim holtz distress ink pad- tumbled glass
  • archival ink pad- cobalt
  • mama elephant- artic penguins and jolly & merry stamp sets
  • black memento ink pad and copics
  • SU! on film framelit die
  • mama elephant landscape trio dies
  • hunkydory snowfall acetate
  • sakura stardust glitter pen
to make this card I cut a mat of card to fit onto my card blank, then inked and stamped this with snowflakes to make my background. I stamped my sentiment in the bottom corner and added glitter over the top to accent this. I die cut the frame die out of some white card and glued it in position. I then used the inside edge as a guide and used a craft knife to make an aperture. I then cut 3 squares of white card slightly bigger than the aperture, I very lightly inked the 1st layer, inked the second layer and left the 3rd layer white. I die cut these into sections to create the sky, sea and ice to create scenery. On another piece of card, I used masking techniques to stamp one penguin onto the block of ice and 3 other penguins into huddle together. I coloured these using copics and cut them out. I then positioned my penguins onto the scene and glued all these pieces together. I taped snowfall acetate to the back of my frame then taped the scene in position behind. I glued this to the card blank using foam tape to add dimension.

to make the inside of my card, I cut a mat of cardstock. I stamped my greeting with a skating penguin positioned at the end of the word. I coloured the penguin with some copics and glittered the greeting to finish my card.


  1. Those little penguins are just adorable, even more so in your photo frame "selfie"! Thanks so much for sharing with us this week at The Paper Players!
