Scrap N' Dipity - Let it Snow!

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 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)

Here's the card flat and ready for an envelope:
