Penguin Holidays


It's Anja here on the blog today. I made another card using one of the new arctic dies. They are all so adorable and it was so much making this holiday scene.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Arctic Penguins & Igloo, Christmas Pup w/ Dog House),
- Distress Inks,
- white card base (15x15 cm),
- white card stock paper for die cuts and background (14x14 cm),
- black pen,
- brush,
- Perfect Pearls powder,
- water spritzer,
- washi tape,
- heat gun,
- adhesive foam pads,
- paper glue.

First I cut and colored the penguins and the tree. I used black pen for the eyes.

Next I trimmed paper for the background. I taped it to my glass surface and masked it with washi tape. I used different shades of Distress Inks to color the night sky.

When satisfied with the shade, I used Perfect Pearls mixed with water. I used heat gun to dry the paper.

Next I used adhesive foam pads to adhere the background and lift it a bit from the card base.

Last I glued all the pieces to the background and my card was done.

I wish you a stress less Monday and see you again on Sunday.
