Holiday 2016 - Penguin with Snowman Balloon

Happy Holiday Crafty Friends!

Since I LOVE penguins, I thought it would be fitting to start my Holiday Card Series with a penguin.

This cute penguin with snowman balloon is a digital stamp from JustMEdigitalstamps.  I created the tag by die cutting the Scalloped Banners die from Avery Elle and then die cutting the Storybook 1 die from Pretty Pink Posh in the center.  Added some pattern paper on the back panel of the tag, because I made it so it opens like a card by using a folded piece of white card stock and not die cutting the fold when I cut the scalloped shape.

On the card I used the same pattern paper twice... on the card's backgound and on the tags front.  This time I added a tiny circle tag with a "hi" greeting on the penguin's hand (penguins hands/wings are actually called flippers and are used to propel themselves through water.)

I hope you have enjoyed the first post of the series.  I'll be doing a GIVEAWAY at the end of the series, I will randomly pick one lucky person to win... here are the rules:

  2. I absolutely LOVE these Mary. So adorable and the tag shape is fantastic. Also, appreciated the penguin biology lesson!
