Merry and Bright

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are having a great weekend so far. As I sit writing this, it seems to be raining/storming again here in the Greater Cincinnati area. This has been the wettest summer in 144 years. Well my grass is green and the lawn guys are here every week to mow cause that grass is growing like crazy.

Saturday I held my regular monthly card class but since Simply Said Rubber Stamps, (the store where I teach) is celebrating Christmas in July, I taught 3 Christmas cards. So this week I will be sharing with you those three cards.

First up is this cute card.

Those white strips are glittery papers that the students made and then cut into 1/2" strips and applied diagonally to a card panel. I used a silver mirror card stock to cut the ovals.That sentiment is embossed directly on that silver card stock. (Sorry for the glare)  That cute penguin is stamped on white card stock, colored and then fussy-cut out and mounted directly on another silver oval. A little bakers twine as an accent and that card is ready to be sent.

Stamps: Darcies Heart and Home  JCS221 (Penguins)
Paper/Card Stock
: Red CS, White CS, Mirror CS
Ink: Various markers to color penguin ;Versamark, 
Dies Used:  Spellbinders Ovals sm  
Accessories: Glitter, Bakers Twine, Black Detail Embossing Powder

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
