I made an Acetate card with adorable penguins from Fuzzy Wishes stamp set #670. Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers. I stamped the image to the Post-It Note paper and cut it out. I used it as a mask to ink the background behind the penguins with Salty Ocean Distress ink. I sprinkled some Super Thick White Embossing Powder around the image and melted them with heat tool from underneath. To make the penguins stand in the snow I used Dimensional Glue and Sparkling Snow glitter. Same glue and glitter was also used on Santa's hat. Matting layer behind the image is die cut out of white cardstock. I added some Salty Ocean ink through the die stencil. Entire layer is inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Sparkle EP.

Card front is made with Clear Embossable Acetate. I stamped snowflakes from Snow One Like You  stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed with White Detail EP. 

On following photo you can see this lovely acetate card front much better. 

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and it's heat embossed with  Black Detail EP. Little penguin is colored with Promarkers. I added Sparkling Snow glitter to his hat with Sakura Glue Pen

Inside panel is inked with Salty Ocean, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Inks. Then I stamped border from Fuzzy Wishes set with Versmark ink and heat embossed with Sparkle EP. I added some more blue ink around the embossing to make it pop up slightly better.
I sprinkled Super Thick White Embossing Powder all around the background and melted them with heat tool from underneath. It looks like a falling snow.

The next stop on our blog hop is Irit. Have fun!
