Pretties Thursday Penguin Style

Do you like penguins? I do! This little penguin from Paper Pretties always brings a smile to my face!

I paired him with some gorgeous Wassail paper and brads from Basic Grey and some pretty felt ribbon and snowflake from SU!. I really liked my clear button layered with a brad that I posted yesterday so I did the same for this card. And added a Felt Flurry to the mix for even more texture.

I sponged all layers with Chocolate Chip Classic ink and distressed with the distressing tool. I also added some paper piercing for even more texture.

A sentiment was stamped in Winter White Craft ink on Chocolate Chip cardstock and heat set. It was then affixed to the main image with two little brads from Basic Grey.

To create the triangles I cut a 3 1/2" square of Old Olive cardstock and cut in half from corner to corner. I did the same on a 3 1/4" sqaure of Wassail designer paper.

I think that is it for any special instructions... the rest was just using a whole lot of adhesive and dimensionals to adhere all of the layers together. I do so love my dimensions. :)

Cool Paper Pretties News!
