Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Holiday Critters Challenge! For this card I wanted to feature the adorable penguins from Penguin Party, and I thought a snow globe just might be the perfect place for them to call home.
I started by stamping out my images, coloring them with Copic markers, and trimming them out with the matching dies.
Then I started on my background. I blended Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink onto the edges of a Blue Jay Cardstock panel, to give it some definition. Then I used the Snowflake Background Stencils and some white pigment ink, like Yeti, to add some snowflakes over top. I splattered that with some Gansai Tambi Starry Colors in the pearl shade, and then set that aside to dry. I also cut the Magic Iris Snow Globe Add-on out of Blue Jay cardstock and gave it the exact same treatment.
While that was drying, I got to work on my Magic Iris mechanism. I die cut that out of Blue Jay Cardstock as well, so everything would match nicely.
I die cut the background panel with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and glued it to a Chili Pepper card base. Then I added a snowdrift with the Stitched Hillside Border. I attached the Snow Globe Add-on to the Magic Iris mechanism and adhered them to the card. Then I added another snowdrift, a Chili Pepper base to the snow globe, and accents with Metallic Silver Cardstock.
I glued the igloo inside the Magic Iris window, and my penguins to the rim of the Snow Globe. I finished with some Stardust Stickles on the light bulbs, and some white gel pen snow on the closed sausages.
