Christmas In July: Creating A Framed Playful Penguins Card

Today we have another two new releases and we are going to showing you how to create this fun card using frames, stamping and heat embossing. We also have another quick colouring video with hints and tips of how to shade this lovely new digi.

We’ve used a blue and white colour palette for this card. Snow is the one thing I think we all wish for at Christmas time – only it’s a very rare occasion we have a white Christmas here in England – so alot of my card creation features snowflakes/snowfall, to me it’s a symbol of the festive season. The backing paper we’ve used is from our ‘Christmas Penguins‘ Paper Pack

My favourite thing about this digi stamp is the fun the season which is captures – kids love to get out on their sledges when there’s fresh snow fall & you can just see the joy on the little penguins face – very cute!


Let’s get creating…

Step By Step; Creating your framed card

Step 1; Take a black 8×8″ card we’ve then used a ‘Stamps By Chloes’ snowflake board stamp, VersaMark embossing ink pad & Wow Embossing Powder ‘Glacier’. Stamp round each edge of the card (have a spare piece of paper to shake the embossing powder onto) Then use your heat glue to seal the stamped image.
Step 2; Print and shade your digi stamp in – see youtube for colouring tips.
Step 3; Cut your matt and layers with square nesting dies – also cut a frame.
Step 4; To create snowfall in the background of the digi, place small glue dots around the image & shake glitter over the top – this will need to left to dry. Make sure your glue is dries clear.
Step 5; Stick pattern paper, & your matt and layer digi to the card – i’ve put the digi on at an angle. & place foam pads around the inside edge of your frame & stick
Step 6; finish your card off with a sentiment, die cut snowflakes and adhesive gems
