Good Morning all and welcome to another new week.
So today i am sharing the first christmas cards ive made this year. I just loved these grumpy penguins when i saw them in action last year so just had to buy them. Their expressions just make me laugh. I have combined them with an acetate cardbase and brusho/pixie powder mix for the backgrounds.
First Make an acetate 6x6" cardblank using the snowfall acetate. Then using brushos & pixie powders make wintry backgrounds. Stamped the penguins and added a little colour to the beaks and eyes using wink of stella pens. I then cut them out. I die cut a frame from white cardstock and then mounted the penguins. From left over brusho card i die cut various snowflakes, layered them up and added a gem to finish.
Just different colours, i also added splashes of white paint to the background to match the snowfall on the acetate.
I love that using the brusho's and pixie powders that no two backgrounds are the same.
Just showing the card stood up and showing the acetate better. I also added matching die cuts to the back of the front and back of the back so that no glue is on show, it also adds more space for writing and little messages that we add sometimes.
I know im behind the times making my first acetate cards but really enjoyed them, so watch out for more acetate in action!
