Hello, my friends!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I have a card to share for Scrap N' Dipity.
I'm using one of the adorable penguins from the "Not-So-Helpful Xmas Penguins" image,
which you can find HERE.
After I posted this card HERE,
I was asked to do a tutorial on how I put it together.
With a new season and a new character...here we go! :o)
First, here is my finished card:
Here is how I made it:
For the card base
Cut an 8 1/2 X 11 piece of cardstock:
5 1/2 X 11
1 1/2 X 11
Score the 5 1/2 X 11- mountain fold @ 2 3/4
- valley fold @ 5 1/2
Score the 1 1/2 X 11 - mountain fold @ 5 1/2
- valley fold @ 8 1/4
Now cut the mats for the base:
2 @ 2 1/2 X 5 1/4
1 @ 5 1/4 X 5 1/4
Here the mats have been adhered to the base.
I added a snowflake border punch along the bottom edge of the 1 1/2" strip.
Adhere the border strip to the base where shown in photo.
Just the first 2 3/4" and the last 2 3/4".
Then all that's left is to embellish it any way you want.
I added the sweet colored penguin first!
Then I added snowflakes, and rhinestones, and a stamped sentiments! :o)
