Down sizing for Christmas! ppp-pick up a tiny penguin

Hi all

Just a quick little post to share a cute little card!
I joined the facebook challenge 'Make one card a week for Christmas'
in an effort to have lots of cards all ready and waiting to be sent when christmas comes around 😃

There's a different optional theme each week
 this week its make a 3 inch square card
If i make one of these each week I'll have no storage problems lol.

So here it is in all it's glory  -3inches square!
- though it could be any size in this photo
- the wonders of photo editing!


I just decided to tackle this card the same as making a larger card with mats and layers, embellies and a sentiment - it wasn't until I actually cut the card did I realise quite how tiny 3 inches is - in card terms it's really really tiny!

This is what I did....

Card made with white Sheena stamping card from Crafter's Companion
Mat and latered with black card and cored'nations red card
Penguin and snow flakes die cuts  - Sara's Cute Christmas range from Crafters Companion
Sentiment stamp from LOTV
Pearls and ribbon from my stash

Can't wait for next weeks challenge!

hugs
Judith xx

That penguin is so sweet, and as you say, being 3"square, they won't take up too much storage room.
