Chill Out Ice Fishing

I'm really squeaking in just under the wire with my Christmas card for this week...eeks! I honestly thought that I wouldn't get one done because I was away all week, then it's so nice and sunny here, finally, so I was out enjoying the weather. true fashion, the dark clouds rolled in late this afternoon and it started to rain, so I ran upstairs to stamp.   :)

I love these little penguins from Elzybells. This stamp actually belongs to my BFF Dana (we combined our order and I just haven't sent hers to her yet, but she knew she wasn't getting it til I used it first...that's what friends are for, right? giggle!). I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured it with copics. This one was super quick to colour up...perfect for my very limited amount of cardmaking time today. I added some liquid applique to his hat and covered all the snow with Diamond Dust so it looks icy. He is ice fishing, after all. 

The image was cut out with square Nestabilities and layered onto baja blue. The layout for this card is SC234 from Splitcoast. The red polka dot paper is from the Twitterpated line and I layered it onto old olive, then baja breeze, then onto the white card base. I ran the olive layer through my Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder after I stamped the Chill Out sentiment from Stamping Bella.

The card looks a little plain to me without any embellishments, but everything I tried adding looked wrong, so I've left it bare. 

Thanks for stopping by!
