Christmas Card Challenge

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

One of my favourite Christmas songs! It makes me feel toasty warm when i listen to it from inside my home looking out the window at the "frightful" weather as the song suggests.

I have been inspired to make this card as part of the November Challenge from Seven Hills Crafts

It features two little cute penguins sharing a gift in their snowy habitat!

 I thought about creating a cool shaker card using acetate and sequins with these little penguins inside to mimic snowfall. However, I just couldn't resist the glitter cardstock, which i think really makes the penguins stand out.

In the picture above, you can see all of the products i have used to create this card. I have also linked to the websites where i purchased my supplies from. Here is the list of supplies:

Penguins - Mama Elephant Love Quotes stamp set

Gift embellishment - Party embellishment from Poundland

Snowflake embellishment - Wooden snowflakes from The Range

Ink used for stamping - Versafine Onyx Black ink

Glitter cardstock - from The Range 

Stitched circle die - My Favourite Things Flop Card CircleDienamics 

Adhesive - Double sided tape from The Range and also double sided foam rectangles (Behind penguins) from Home Bargains

Cardstock - I used some pale blue cardstock that I had lying around and stuck it to the front of a piece of A4 240gsm white cardstock which i folded in half to make the card itself.

Some of the supplies may not be on the websites as some supplies i bought from in store. This was the case for The Range, Poundland and Home Bargains.

I really hope you like the card design. I am really looking forward to Christmas and making a start on my gift tags and cards. Christmas is my favourite time of year.

Let's hope it snows!

Bye guys!


  1. What adorable penguins! I think you were right to use the glitter card stock as they look fantastic against it. Love your choice of Christmas song too - I was singing that the other day! (Yes, I love Christmas!) Super card, very festive and with an authentic "frosty" feel that suits the theme perfectly. Thanks so much for joining in with us this month at Seven Hills Crafts :)

  2. Aw, how sweet. That's the song I've got in my head recently too (now that it's gotten cold here!). Love your little birdies.

    1. Thank you for your comment, i cant get that song out my head at all now! but it is the season!

  3. Those little penguins are rather cute in their cosy home, great way to use the song as inspiration :)
    Thanks for playing along with our last challenge of 2016 at Seven Hills Crafts :)
