Winter Penguin Shaker

Hello, everyone! I'm still in the festive mood! Today I made a card featuring an adorable image from By Miss Rach called Winter Penguin. Isn't he the sweetest?! I recently won a whole bunch of "Christmas in July" images from By Miss Rach and I couldn't wait to colour this cutie  - thank you, Miss Rach!

I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and added Snow Writer to his hat and Glossy Accents to his eyes. You all know I love to make shaker cards so I made another one!  This time I used glitter in my shaker along with sequins, but I probably won't do it again.  All the glitter fell to the bottom and I wasn't crazy about how it looked, so I hid it with a ribbon bow. You can still see the glitter when you shake the card though.  This card has a lot of sparkle as the added snowflakes are die-cut from white glitter cardstock.


Here are the other products used:

  • Dies: Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles, Memory Box Twilight Snowflakes, Lawn Fawn Mini Stitched Snowflakes
  • Embossing folder: Taylored Expressions Winter Flurry
  • Sentiment stamp: Sugar Pea Designs - Sweet Treats
  • Glitter cardstock: Colorbok 
  • Ribbon: DL.ART Christmas Red
  • Accents: Clear sequins, Darice glitter 

I was inspired by this sketch at Sketch Saturday #420:

Thanks for sharing this great shaker card with us at Winter Wonderland. I was going to say your penguin is very pretty, but since you are saying"him" he might not like that! Good luck in the challenge. Christine DT x

The idea of the glitter was so good, very creative, sinned that it weighs too much and it falls after all immediately. But I'm sure that when you shake the card its sparkling is wonderful! Perhaps you could mix glitter and sequins... however your shaker card is very beautiful with this cute penguin and the snowflakes!!! The red bow is a lovely detail!
