hallo - aus der Ferne

Hello crafty friends, Nicole here.
Today I have a penguin window card for you that says "hello from afar".

I needed a break from making christmas cards and because my "cool buddies" were right next to me, I made a wintery card for a dear friend that lives way to far away :-)

While making the card, I thought it would be fun to make a window card, so that the penguins are close while the card is closed and far away when it's open. That just went well with the sentiment "hello from afar".

  • color and fussy cut the two penguins. I added some white paper at the back of the larger penguin, because you could see the alcohol markers bleeding throug
  • stamp the snowflake background, die cut the panel and glue it to your card base
  • take a smaller rectangle die and die cut a window from your card front
  • stamp the greeting on some colored card stock by using a clear sticky ink, white embossing powder and a heat tool
  • take the die cut part from the window and add some distress ink to the borders
  • close your card and glue the die cut rectangle back in its place on the back of the card
  • glue on the sentiment and add the larger penguin with some foam tape but remember, just stick him to the card front (!)
  • glue the smaller penguin on the inside of the card
  • for a finishing touch I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to make a little snowy scene
Here you can easily see where you can write your message :-)
