Chilly the penguin is just hanging out in this card, I put a spring behind him so he wiggles. It kind of looks like he is shivering lol.

ok. so there are quite a few details to this card so hopefully, I mention them all 🙂

Chilly the penguin is the star of the show and he is a die from Karen Burniston, as is the tiny bow on the gifts

All the other supplies are from Stampin’ Up. The colours of cardstock used are Island Indigo, Soft Sky, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, and Pumpkin Pie. Ink colours used are Island Indigo and Soft Sky.

To make the gifts I used three different snowflake stamps and stamped each on their own piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, covering the entire piece of cardstock. One was stamped in the Soft Sky, and 2 were stamped in the Island Indigo. I then cut out all the gifts in the three slightly different sizes. I lightly sponged the edges of the of the Soft Sky set, and one of the Island Indigo sets, the last set I sponged it darker so it looked different from the other set on the same colour. I then added the die cut bows.

To make the card base I cut the main part of the card at 4″ x 10 1/2″ scored at 5 1/4″ and I stamped the same snowflakes in the same colours as when I stamped the gifts on the left side of the card.

The front panel is a Very Vanilla piece of cardstock cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″ with a circle cut out of the left side to make a window to see the snowflakes, I added an Island Indigo frame around the window. I sponged Island Indigo ink around the outside edges of the panel. I stamped the greeting in Island Indigo ink on the upper right side. I wrapped the glitter ribbon around the bottom section of the panel then used Stampin’ dimentionals to attach the panel to the card, by using the dimentionals it raises the panel up from the card base.  I added the gifts under the message.

After making the penguins I also made springs out of light wire and added a small cardstock circle to the top and bottom of the spring basically making an action wobbler. I glued the penguin to the top of the spring and attached the bottom of the spring to the card base through the window.

Inside the card, stamped the message and a few snowflakes.

I added a 4 1/4″ x  5 1/2″ piece of Island Indigo cardstock to the back of the card to frame the entire card.
