You, Me and Penguin make 3!

Hi! Let's make a fun winter card with Miss Kate Cuttables Penguins.

Before we get into my project, be sure to get your FREEBIE OF THE DAY over at Miss Kate Cuttables by clicking here.

Now back to my card, I used the adorable penguin from the Penguin Set.
I made both penguins since I was cutting anyway. This way I have one ready to go for my next project! (I also cut two more penguins from Penguins Set 1)

Now on to the Project!


Purchase your files, unzip them and upload them to your favorite cutting program. I used Silhouette Designer Edition for my Cameo 3. I laid out my penguins and sized them to the size I wanted them to be. Mine are 4 inches high. You can make them any size, that is the great thing about digital images. You are not limited to one size like with metal dies. I made a 5x7 inch card so I made him larger then usual. As I stated above I also cut the second set of penguins since the paper colors were all the same, the only thing different on each were their scarves. I then assembled all 4 penguins at the same time so I have them ready to go for my next projects.

For this card I used an old 12x12 paper pad from Michaels. It is made for scrapbooking but lately I am doing more cards then pages so I decided to adapt some of the elements for my card. I picked my papers and then decided to use the word page for my sentiments.  Below is a pic of my scrapbook paper that I cut apart for my card. I like to use all of the pad when I can. These types of pages are hard to scrapbook with but they are great for card making!

I cut out the sayings I wanted to use and backed them on black paper with a tiny border. I also cut my background paper to 5x7 inch (red dot paper) and mounted that on my card base. I cut a 3.25x4 inch paper for the middle box and also backed it with black paper. (blue polka dot paper)
I laid my design out and put the words where I wanted them and went back and glued them down. I used foam dots on my penguin so he stands out a bit. Lastly, I added some Wink of Stella pen to the scarf and white dots with my white gel pen.

I hope you like my card. Give it a try! If you make something with these files, be sure to post them below and share with all of us! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
