Everyone loves silly Playful Penguins whether at the zoo, in a movie or on a card, they are just so cute! Therefore, Playful Penguins in the Penguin Place Bundle are no exception! I used Snowy White 12 x 12 Velvet Sheets to make mounds of snow for them to play on. I even took a retired snowman on skies (you know I have a hard time letting retired stamps go) and stamped off his skis and used them for my fallen penquin.
Here is the inside of my card. I cut out some characters for the inside from Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper you can get for free from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog with a $50 order
This bundle is not just for Christmas, but for year round use. It has cool sayings that can be used for many occasions, I love the saying “To The Coolest Friend Ever and I like you a Lottie!

The outside of card has a mat that is 8 1/4” x 3 1/2” cut out of Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
The next mat is Basic White that is 8” x 3”
I use my spritzer added 1 drop of Misty Moonlight Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill and 1 drop of Balmy Blue Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill to a small amount of alcohol. You can use water, but I hate waiting for something to dry and using alcohol dries really fast.
After spritzing the top of paper to my desired color, I used Versamark ink to stamp the stars. Then I sprinkled on some clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. Stampin’ Up has retired their clear embossing powder, but I still have some just for something like this.
You can use a long business envelope or make your own.
