Saturday Blog Hop: Animals

Updated: May 11, 2023

Hello! Thanks for joining us on the Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our theme this week is Animals! I'm looking forward to seeing all the cute animals that everyone chose for their projects. I've got a fun Christmas Penguin for you today from the Penguin Place Stamp Set.

I've used a winter colour scheme with Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana with Black & White. Here are the basic dimensions to the card.

  1. Coastal Cabana Card Base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", folded in half at 4 1/4".

  2. Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 4" x 5 1/2".

  3. Snowflake DSP: 3 3/4" x 5 1/2".

  4. Celebrate Everything DSP: 2 1/2" x 5 1/2"

  5. Pool Party Ribbon: 12"

Once all the basic layers of the card were added, I punched out a black circle with the Decorative Circle Punch and placed it on top of the Pool Party Ribbon that I gathered up in three loops. The penguin was stamped in Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay and Mango Melody. I heat embossed the sentiment in black on Bermuda Bay and just cut to size. Lastly, this card needed some sparkly gems and I went for the Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems. So cute!
