Christmas in July - Penguin Playmates - Share it on a Sunday

 Hi Everyone,

For Share it on a Sunday this week we are doing 'Christmas in July'. The new Mini Catalogue is about to go live and I am showcasing the Penguin Place Bundle and the Penguin Playmates dsp (FREE with a qualifying purchase in the Saleabration brochure).  This set is sooo cute, just wait until you see it.


1 piece of real red card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", 1 piece 2" x 3 1/2" and a scrap for the sentiment layer and the bow
2 pieces of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", scraps for the mat on the tag and the sentiment and hat
1 piece of Penguin Playmates * dsp 3 5/8" x 5 3/8" , scrap to punch out the penguin
Delightful Tag Topper Punch
Penguin Punch *
Stitched so Sweetly dies
Pierced Bloom dies
6" piece of misty moonlight ribbon
Penguin Place Bundle *
Real red ink
Misty moonlight ink
Shaded spruce ink
Basic rhinestones
Simply scored
Multipurpose adhesive
Bone folder
Paper snips

* items from the new catalogue


On the long side score the real red card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the dsp layer to the white layer and wrap the ribbon around about 1" from the top and secure on the back with sticky tape. Adhere this layer to the card front.

Punch out the tag from real red card and die cut the rectangle (approx 1 5/8" x 2 5/8") from white. Punch out one of the penguins from the dsp (or you can stamp your own)and add to the white layer on the tag. Stamp some stars above the penguin on the tag. Stamp a red hat on a scrap of white card and fussy cut, then add to the top of the penguins head.  Adhere the tag to the card front at an angle.  Die cut a bow from the Pierced Blooms dies (or use another piece of ribbon) and at the top of the tag with a mini dimensional.  Decorate with a rhinestone.

Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of basic white and add it to the red layer (I glued the strip to the red layer and then cut round it), add to the card front using dimensionals.

Decorate the remaining piece of white card with a sentiment, some stars and a tree and then adhere to the inside of the card.

I hope that you like my card and will give it a try.  Don't forget to pop over and see what Donna and Victoria have made too.
