SCS Blogger 3 Challenge 2

Our newest Blogger challenge was a "Flap Card" either with a Christmas theme or a summer holiday.

As you can see, I picked Christmas!

I used some textured Bazzill red cs as my base and the same kind, but in green, as the accents/mats. The pp and ribbon I bought last year after Chrismtas when it was on sale.

I stamped the penquin in CTMH black, paper pieced his hat and scarf from the same red cs. I colored his beak and feet with copics. I used stickles on the trim of the hat and pom pom, then covered it with glossy accents (after the stickles had dried).

I used my cricut to cut the 2 circles to layer and pierced the image.

On the inside I used rub ons that matched the paper on the outside.

I glued the ribbon on the bottom part of the flap, so that when I tied it the card would stay closed.

TOMORROW, the voting will begin!

I'll post the link here on my blog.
