Penguin Playmates Day 3

Penguin Playmates Day 3 features two card designs using the Penguin Playmates paper, but there’s not a penguin in sight! Instead, today we’ll be using 1″ x 4″ striped patterns to accent both a Christmas and birthday card.

On Day 1 of the series you’ll find information on how to get the Penguin Playmates paper during Sale-a-Bration. You’ll want to check out the 4 card designs there as well! On Day 2, explore 4 ways to use a 5″ x 3″ piece of Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper: Two designs use a horizontal layout and two have a vertical layout.

Just click the button below each card in order to see the cutting dimensions and products used to create the card. At the end of the post there will also be a list of all products used on the Penguin Playmates cards today.

Penguin Playmates Day 3 – Christmas Without Penguins!

Being double-sided, one side of the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper has patterns suitable for everyday occasions, such as the blue and white stripes which we’re incorporating into today’s Christmas card design.

Begin with a Misty Moonlight base. Then continue by adding a 1″ x 4″ strip of the blue and white striped DSP at the bottom. Also emboss a 4″ vellum square with the Evergreen Forest embossing folder and adhere it at the top of the card base. Lastly finish with Stitched Triangles and a Word Wishes die cut greeting.

Additionally, be sure to add some gold shimmer ribbon and gold sequins to embellish the wintry scene! For complete instructions, click the button below the card.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas with Word Wishes die cuts on an Evergreen Forest embossed vellum background. Add accents with Stitched Triangles and gold shimmer ribbon.

Celebrate a Birthday

Striped 1″ x 4″ Penguin Playmates paper works equally well for a Birthday card. First cut and fold Basic White Thick cardstock for the card base. Secondly emboss Just Jade cardstock with the Timeworn Type embossing folder for a decorative background. Thirdly add the Penguin Playmates striped paper near the bottom of the card front. Besides stamping a butterfly, flower and leaf image with the Positive Thoughts stamps, die cut more butterflies and leaves using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. Finally arrange these elements on the card front and adhere them, popping some up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Penguin Playmates Day 3: Positive Thoughts, and Nature's Thoughts Dies create this birthday card design. For a lovely textured background, emboss the Just Jade cardstock with the Timeworn Type embossing folder, then add coordinating striped paper.
