Have a Cool Yule

I put down the Christmas script die for my Clearly Whimsy card this week and pulled out this cute little guy from Penguin Fun (with his matching die)!

The snow bank is cut using the stitched border trio dies, then I  stamped snowflakes from Sparkle & Shine on the card base, blue on blue, and versamark on the white. I embossed them with iridescent ice for some shine.

I cut a second layer of the snow bank for the focal, added the sentiment and penguin, and popped up the layer.The focal point layer is popped up.  I cut a thin strip of pale plum paper, stamped the stitching from Basic Backgrounds & Borders, cut it in half and notched the ends to create little flags to set off the sentiment.

This week's challenge is an color challenge inspired by this photo:

Here's my card:

I alternated strips of gold shimmer paper and silver glitter paper on a base, then added a sentiment flag with my favorite large Christmas word die.  The rest of the sentiment is from Christmas Greetings.  I tied a black satin bow for the final detail. 

Get all the details for this challenge here. I hope you'll play along with us!

All stamps and dies by Clearly Whimsy.

Whimsy Snowflakes

For this week's Clearly Whimsy card, I broke out the snowflakes from Sparkle & Shine.  I stamped them all over a blue piece with white ink.  I put a diagonal flag strip stamped with the stripes from Basic Borders & Backgrounds on next.  Of course I had to use that gorgeous scripty Christmas die again! I cut it several times from dark blue paper and glued them all together. I added the rest of the sentiment (from Christmas Greetings) and a clear snowflake from my stash.  Star dust stickles went on my Christmas last, it's so gorgeous like that!
