For You Penguin Card

Today I have a photo tutorial for a card I did for day 12 at the 12 Days of Giveaways at MarkerPop.   I had an idea for a card with a scene using a penguin image I had by Pink and Main.  First I needed a tree and used my ScanNCut2 to cut a green cardstock die cut.  

After creating the green cardstock diecut, set it aside.  Next you need to make your white cardstock base.

I used a cloud stencil to make the background on the white cardstock.

I tore three pieces of white cardstock to put at the bottom of the card base to make it look like it had snowed.  I also cut a piece of brown cardstock so the tree would have a trunk.  :)

Next I stamped my images.  I thought I would be putting two penguins on my card but ended up only using one of them.  I colored the images using Copic markers.

Next I cut from red cardstock a word diecut using my Big Shot.

Then I assembled all the pieces of my card and used a white chalk marker to add details to the tree diecut.  Plus I used the white chalk marker to make it look like snow falling on the stenciled cloud background.

Next I applied Frosted Lace Stickles along the edges of the torn white edges and spread it with a Q-tip.  This gives the card some sparkle and looks like "ice."

I glued red, green and blue sequins to the tree.  I hope you enjoyed my little photo tutorial and thanks for stopping by during this busy but happy holiday season.  I am also linking my coffee penguin up at the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and Muse: ChristmasVisions.

That is so cute. That is quite a balancing act. And I love the tree too.
