Penguin Christmas Card

Craft shop toppers can be expensive. These toppers are actually Christmas 3D gift tags.  They cost £1 for a pack of eighteen from a local market. The designs are really cute and include snowmen, santas, penguins etc.Picture 089 All I have done is take the back off the tag and trimmed it ever so slightly, then mat and layered it on blue, gold and a patterned Let It Snow paper.

I have added a pom pom and a gem holly berry to his hat, a couple of punchie snow flakes and my own doodles on the plain blue paper.

I love all your layering with mats and thought the doodled one was actually patten.

You are so clever spying these little things to create a big terrific card. I love how you also add little touches like the pompom.
