Let It Snow!


The digital penguin image and digital "Let It Snow" I am using today are a part of the Penguin Chicks set by Judi Maddigan of Angels Landing. I cannot tell a lie!! This is my favorite little penguin of the bunch!! I love his sweet expression and wonderful hat and scarf so it's no surprise that I just had to have another Christmas card featuring him in my 2009 collection (which has reached the grand total of 60, for those who are counting)!

The penguin was printed on white Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. The snowflake background was created by inking my Cuttlebug Snowflake folder with Bordering Blue ink from Stampin' Up using my brayer. I then added the torn paper ground and the rhinestone flowers. The sentiment and torn edge on the ground have Frosted Lace Stickles added.

The Stampin' Up cardstock used includes Riding Hood Red, Bordering Blue, Whisper White, and So Saffron.


To create the inside of the card I selected this little blue snowflake from Angels Landing's Seasonal Borders and lined it up along the top and bottom of my insert to create this fun snowflake border. I then added the same rhinestone flowers I used on the cardfront. The sentiment is from Snowflakes by Stampin' Up and is stamped in SU Bordering Blue leaving room for a personal holiday message!

  10. Congrats on reaching 60 Christmas cards, Lynn. That's quite an accomplishment.

    This one is a charmer. The torn edge works great for a snowbank, and those gems for the snowflake centers sure add an elegant touch.
