Ho Ho Ho

Yup, here we go again, a new set of Christmas cards. I've noticed that I'm going for more non traditional colours when making them now, not so surprising really as we have a lovely summer warm day over here. And no sign of Father Christmas, a cooling penguin is just what I need. (Hm, +40 and hormones you know!)

The penguin are Simon Says Stamps own, the larger one is stamped with Memories black and heat embossed in clear. It was coloured with Alpha Markers, Sakura Stardusts and Uni Ball white (love this one!). The penguin row is stamped with Distress Ink and got covered with Sakura clear glaze. Snowflakes are Cuttlebug and label is a Spellbinder die. Paper is MME Bella Bella. I also added some Liquid Pearls.

The text is Merry Christmas in Swedish.
