Polkadoodles Shaped Christmas Card

Ruth has set the theme for this weeks challenge on the Polkadoodles blog and she wants to see cards or projects that are
Christmassy and Shaped (no squares or rectangles allowed).

This time around I used the penguin from Magical Winter 1 CD, printed him out on the right hand side of A4 card, folded the card so that his flipper touched the fold, then cut through two layers at once, (except for where his flipper touched the fold and a couple of centimetres at the bottom). I decoupaged his flippers and scarf, adding some pompom trim at the bottom of the scarf and tucking a sentiment panel under his flipper.

Look out for Nikky on Create and Craft this coming week ,I think she's on Wednesday 23rd, it will be the first showing of her fab new CD Pretty Tuff, which is a boy version of Pretty Sweet, there is some fabulous images and digi stamps on their as well as lots of lush papers. I've done some samples, see if you can recognise them!

 Pop over to the Polkadoodles blog and check out the rest of the fabulous Shaped Christmas inspiration from my teamies.

You have until 27th November Noon GMT to enter the challenge, looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

I've been watching Frozen Planet on the BBC and this just reminds me of the baby penguins I saw on there. He is so cute, and I love the little pompoms on the scarf. Gorgeous card!
