Countdown to Christmas 2021 #7

The 7th project in my Countdown to Christmas 2021 series is this card from my recent ‘Crack Your Christmas Cards’ class.

Countdown to Christmas 2021 #7. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

At the class there were 16 cards to make, 4 each of 4 different designs.  This is the first project.

It’s similar to this poinsettia project I shared a few weeks ago. I love reusing designs, it’s such a quick and easy way of making something new.

All of the projects from the class use the Penguin Place Bundle (Penguin Place Stamp Set & Penguin Builder Punch from the Mini Catalogue.

In the Class Kit, the attendees also received some Glittered Organdy Ribbon and Holiday Rhinestones, as well as all the cardstock they needed.

My colour combination is Night of Navy, Coastal Cabana and Basic White, plus Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie for the penguin.

To begin, the background is randomly stamped, using the snowflakes and star images from the set.

Then, lengths of the ribbon are added to look like a present.

The penguin is stamped and punched out using the Bundle, plus a hat and scarf are fussy cut.

Two shapes are cut using the Essential Tag Punch. These are offset and the penguin is then adhered on top.

This section is raised up using Dimensionals.

Finally,  a few coordinating Holiday Rhinestones are added to the project.

Keep an eye out for the other projects from this class.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this project. Don’t forget to pop back for the next in my Countdown to Christmas 2021 series.
