Now on to my card.I’ve used this adorable Christmas Penguin from Digi Doodle Shop.Not only do you get this one you’ll receive him with a plain bauble – you can add your own message if you’d like!I’ve coloured him with ProMarkers and created some texture to his hat trims using Woodware White Fluffy Stuff.Believe me this is am amazing product -you MUST try it!I’ve defined the capital letters on the bauble with a Sky Blue Copic Atyou Spica pen before coating it in Glossy Accents.Black Soot and Broken China Distress Inks have applied to the edges.The backing piece of Core’dinations Gemstones card has been embossed with a Papermania A Silent Night folder.The edge of the vellum overlay has been punched with a Martha Stewart Aspen Edger.Some of the leftover snowflakes have been placed onto some punched from more Gemstones card using the matching corner punch.Teeny Crafts Too gems have been to the centres.More gems in the next size up have been used to cover up where I glued the vellum.Another piece of Gemstones card,in black,has been used to mount the whole image to define it from the background. A freebie sentiment stamp from a set in this month’s Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine inked with Jet Black Archival ink completes the card.

    These shades of blue are gorgeous. The vellum looks fab too. I pulled my vellum out this week and put it back. Now I’ll have to pull it out again! Hugs, Linda
