Happy Feet


My order of Mama Elephant and Simon Says holiday goodies arrived and I finished up the first of many cards, I'm sure.  I took my inspiration from the current CAS(E) This Sketch, just under the wire too.  I really like the layout so may Christmasify this design on a future card by adding some of the winter hats included in the set and changing out the sentiment.  Cute!!!

I first diecut the ME stitched border die for a hill then I stamped the penguins willy nilly.  The last one reminds me of when penguins launch themselves down a hill straight into the water.  To die for cute!  (get it--to "die" for, ba bum bum)    Next was the sentiment followed by texture paste snow.  While the stencil was still in place I added glitter to the flakes.  While that was drying I used Scor Tape on the card base and burnished glitter onto it for blingy snow.  You guessed, I mounted the scene on foam tape on top of that.  Voila!

The Details:  Mama Elephant Jolly & Merry sentiment, Arctic Penguins and stitched curves border dies, Simon Says Falling Snow embossing folder, Doodlebug Design Sugar Coating Lily White Glitter (my absolute fav), and Versafine Onyx Black

I'm entering this in CAS(E) This Sketch! #96, Fab 'n' Funky #234 In Stitches Let's Have a Laugh, The Paper Players #218 CAS
Edited 23 Oct 2014:  Took a new picture at the office with better light after I had colored the beaks and feets.
