Penguin Hugs

Happy Friday!  Have you had a chance to look at the new Christmas Dies Part 1?  Aren't they wonderful?  And for a limited time they are 25% off!

It's Jeanne today and my card features the adorable Hugging Penguins from that release.
I started by cutting the penguins from black, white, Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow cardstock.
I used Copic markers to color the beaks and feet, and add dimension and shading to the white of the penguins and the fur trim on their hats.
I assembled the penguins.  In order to get them close enough to "hug" I had to cut off the arm of the guy on the left.  A great thing about this die is that these also stand alone - they don't have to hug or wear winter gear making them very versatile.
When they were close enough I added the scarf.
I cut the word "hugs" from Mossy Meadow and used an adhesive backing sheet.  I really like to do this with word dies.  It makes adhering them so much easier.
I used an A2 card base in Mossy Meadow, cut a white panel 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches and embossed that using a cable knit embossing folder.
The plaid and solid panels are cut using the second and third largest dies from the Double Stitched Rectangle Set.
After adhering the phrase I added the penguins using foam tape.  I just love these little guys - they give me the warm fuzzies!


 Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a relaxing and creative weekend!

You mentioned which die you used to cut that gorgeous plaid paper, but didn't give us a source for it. Would you share? Please. Thank you.
