Penguins, Penguins, Penguins

Here is one of my Christmas cards that I am making. I get too bored making 85 of the absolutely same card, so I usually divide things up and make 4 or 5 different cards. I always make 20 or 25 of each. That means that I have some leftovers. But am I ever glad for those extras when I get that unexpected card... Just address it and drop it in the mail! That is going to be especially handy this year since so much of my supplies are in flux between two houses! And then, if I have some left over, I just stick them back and I am ahead of the game next year... I am constantly adding new friends to my card list, so they will typically get last years card... If there were any left!
To get the 3-D effect, I adhered the furtherest layer of snow and the left penguin with snail. The closest layer of snow and the snowman were adhered with a single layer of dimensionals. The middle penguin was adhered with two layers of dimensionals. The stamp set I used was SU's Punch Pals. I used Bashful Blue and Whisper White cardstock. Black Stazon, SU's markers and dazzling diamonds glitter round it out!
