Sledding Penguins

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this Saturday in October. It's a bit of a chilly one today after the last couple of very warm days. But it is Fall and this is the type of weather changes we get here in PA. 

Going out for a walk as soon as I get this post finished though. I didn't get to do that yesterday because of some other things going on. Then this evening we are going to do a take-out from a local restaurant and enjoy some family time with my son, daughter-in-law and grandsons. We so appreciate the times we can get together now in these days.

Now let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog.  Today, I have for your viewing pleasure a card featuring the new Sledding Penguins dies. This is such a cute die I couldn't resist making a Christmas card with it. I have a family member that loves penguins and has a collection so this card will be perfect for her.

I knew I had several different snow themed designer papers. I just had to pick the one that I wanted to use. Decided on this one from the Stampin'-Up "let it snow" collection. I liked the combination of coastal cabana with touches of white and red. I also cut 2 snow slopes for the penguin sledders.

Coastal Cabana card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Let it snow designer paper: 4 1/8" x 5 1/4"
Next, I cut my penguins in different cardstocks. I gave them red hats and a coastal cabana sled to match the designer paper.

For the card sentiment, I decided to do a combo of die cut phrase and a stamped sentiment. For the Christmas phrase I used the new Merry Christmas Love die and cut in red cardstock. The Merry & Bright phrase is stamped in red ink. 
I am now ready to start card assembly. I attached the snow slopes to the designer paper. The bottom larger slope is attached with dimensional adhesive and the top slope I used double sided tape.
I attached the Penguins to the snow slopes again using dimensional adhesive. I wanted them lifted slightly off the designer paper.

To complete my card, I attached the image panel to the card base. For some added interest I scattered a few red glitter enamel dots. And, that's my card for today. Hope you all have a great weekend and get to do something fun. So until next time......God bless.
