Last Christmas I helped my granddaughter make a last-minute card for her teacher, who loves penguins. And by "helped" I mean that I made a last-minute card for her teacher.
The penguin is from the Cricut cartridge Winter Frolic. To create the snow, I cut a strip of white cardstock the same width as the red background and tore the upper edge to give it a fluffy, "snowy" look. I then enhanced it with the Cuttlebug embossing folder D'vine Swirl.
Because I can never seem to get anything done in a timely manner, my holiday cards will always be posted a year late. After all, who really wants to see a Christmas card on December 26th?
