Penguin Santas



Here are some cute little felt pieces I found at JoAnn Fabrics (for $1!).  I paired these cute felt cutouts with some holiday paper to make these cute easy cards, perfect for little thank yous to my students this year.  Of course, everything looks better with glitter, so on the white circle background, I added a layer of Martha Stewart white glue and sprinkled with some chunky white glitter (also Martha Stewart).  I have gotten several messages asking me how I attach the glitter in my projects. Mostly I use a glue pen, but for chunky glass glitter, I use a white glue.  You could use Elmer's glue, but I use a brand called "Best Glue Ever" by Scraperfect.

Elf

Well, a few more Christmas posts and then I will be working on Valentine projects!  Time flies!  I have had this elf set for years and still love it.  The background paper is from the Recollections pack from Michaels I told you about in an earlier post. I think he made need some glitter though.  This would also make a cute thank you card for the holidays.  Stay in touch for a few more projects....

Dasher

This stamp is so elegant.  I stamped the reindeer and the sentiment in white and then embossed them.  I added some silver glitter on the antlers and mica flakes as the snow.  That's it! How easy is this!

Believe

Some things have to be believed to be seen.  This is one of my favorite cards. I love anything with a Santa. The stamp is a Tim Holtz stamp.  The paper and the embellishment is from Melissa Frances.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up (Just Believe).  This card has a vintage flare to it. Thanks for stopping by.
