Penguin Playmates Day 1: 3″ x 4″ Rectangle & 2″ x 3″ Rectangle

For the Fox and Penguin Chillin’ card, place the larger Penguin Playmates rectangle in the foreground. Then use the striped smaller rectangle in the background. Stamp the sentiment from the coordinating Penguin Place Bundle. In order to provide a few accents, add green sequins from the Sequins for Everything pack, or other small embellishments.

Add a little bling with a couple of 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

On this Penguin Greetings card, the adorable penguin is accented with a Be Dazzling (Sale-A-Bration item) mat for lots of sparkly fun. Cut the little fox from the Penguin Playmates paper. In order to coordinate with the Be Dazzling paper, heat emboss the sentiment from Penguin Place in gold on white paper. For a fun shape, die cut the greeting with the Frightful Tags Dies , then add the small fox at the bottom.

On the Be Cool Snowman card, the large rectangle becomes the background for a cute snowman from the Snowman Season stamp set. Firstly, stamp the snowman image in Versamark ink on Misty Moonlight or Night of Navy cardstock. Secondly, heat emboss the image with white embossing powder. Finally, mat the Penguin Playmates papers and layer the pieces as shown. Don’t forget to add a few sparkly rhinestones and swipes of Wink of Stella too!
