Sledding Penguins

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

We have four brand new releases in the online store. It's Christmas Part 1 (22 new designs), Christmas Part 2 (21 new designs) and a Halloween release (14 new designs). They are all currently on sale and you can save 25% on the individual dies. Christmas Part 3 has just been released and is also on a limited time sale. This one also has savings of 25%.

Today, I have for your viewing pleasure a card featuring the new Sledding Penguins dies. This is such a cute die I couldn't resist  making a Christmas card with it. I have a family member that loves penguins and has a collection so this card will be perfect for her. 

But, It doesn't have to be limited to Christmas. You could use this for a thank you card for a Christmas gift received or a winter themed birthday card. So let's get started on the details of how I created my card. 

Design Steps:

I knew I had several different snow themed designer papers. I just had to pick the one that I wanted to use. Decided on this blue green shade with touches of white and red. I also cut 2 snow slopes for the penguin sledders. 

Coastal Cabana card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Coastal Cabana designer paper: 4 1/8" x 5 1/4"
Next, I cut my penguins in different cardstocks. I gave them red hats and a coastal cabana sled to match the designer paper. 
For the card sentiment, I decided to do a combo of die cut phrase and a stamped sentiment. For the Christmas phrase I used the new Merry Christmas Love die and cut in red cardstock. The Merry & Bright phrase is stamped in red ink. 
I am now ready to start card assembly. I attached the snow slopes to the designer paper. The bottom larger slope is attached with dimensional adhesive and the top slope I used double sided tape. 

I attached the Penguins to the snow slopes again using dimensional adhesive. I wanted them lifted slightly off the designer paper. 

 To complete my card, I attached the image panel to the card base. For some added interest I scattered a few red glitter enamel dots. And that's my card sample for this week. I hope I have given you a fresh idea for a way to use this new die. See you next Saturday!
