Penguins Make Me Happy

Hi All,
Penguin Fun

Ever since I saw the movie "March of the Penguins" I have been fascinated and charmed by those little guys!  So I was naturally drawn to the cute Penguin Fun Christmas set by Woodware USA.  I've been enjoying this set all week!

I made this card for the Inspiration Challenge over on SCS this week.  The website is "Poster Cabaret" and this is the poster that I used as my inspiration.

The embossing technique I used is cased from a card by Gail, aka "mamaxsix" -- she shared this fun tutorial with me, the results are gorgeous IRL!!

I die cut some trees with a christmas Cuttlebug die from last year (sorry, don't have the packaging anymore so I don't know the name!!) and then used a glue stick to glue all my pieces down in a random design.  Then I ran it through my Big Shot using SU! Square Latice EF.  It embeds all the pieces together and it just looks so cool!!  I added my Penguin image (that I had colored with copics and fussy cut) and some half back pearls to the trees and left it at that.

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

You do such a wonderful job hosting the IC, Anne!! Your sample is so beautiful and I love penguins too. It's just the kind of creature that makes you smile automatically.

Oh wowzers, I'm loving those layers embossed together in the folder! That is amazing! It looks like a quilt. Makes me want to climb in under the quilt and take a nice winter nap.
