A QUICK POST, JUST FOR THE HECK OF IT -- NOVEMBER 3, 2021

Hello friends!  Welcome back to my blog!  I wanted to share a card with you that I created using some adorable penguin digis and gorgeous wintry paper from Digi Doodle Studios.  The paper comes from the Suddenly Winter 8x8 digi paper set.  The set the penguins came from was called Winter Time Penguins, but I can no longer find it on the website... my apologies!   I didn't know this until after I created my card.  Here it is:


Of course I made another slimline, this time in the vertical orientation.  I designed the whole thing using my Silhouette Studio software.  I love using this to change the size of digital files, and to create my own die cut panels, which is what I did on this card.  I even added my own sentiment, as I wanted this to be a Christmas-specific card.  The cute penguins were colored with alcohol markers.  I also made this card into a shaker, and made each window into its own shaker area.  Just a bit of extra fine glitter was added in the color "snow" (Recollections).  I did do a bit of inking around the window openings with Salty Ocean oxide ink to cover the white cut edges.
