I shared some cards with the Playful Penguins a little while ago. This time I have a cute card for you but what I particularly want to show you is the background.
I have used the Christmas Layers Dies in the Holiday Catalogue to create this effect.
I have embossed the dies on the card rather than cutting them.
I have shared a few times how to emboss with your Dies -> HERE and -> HERE. It’s very easy and gives you a little more versatility with them. What a cool effect it creates!
To emboss with them you will need to change they way you layer them in your Diecut machine. Here’s a table to help you.
Please note: the table below uses the term Big Shot. Stampin’ Up! no longer uses the term Big Shot. I will update this table very soon.
To finish the card the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and cut with one of the Ornate Frames Dies. I added a strip of the Gold Foil under the sentiment piece that I had flagged the ends. The paper is from the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper.
For balance and for a little extra I added some of the Shaded Spruce Ribbon and cut a Gold snowflake to finish.
I do love these penguins. How about you?? What about trying this effect on your next card.
