Instructions: Click here to view more photos of this project. Stamp the images from Candy Cane Cottage Cling Stamp Set and Season of Glee Cling Stamp Set on a piece of watercolor cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink Pad and color them using Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Worn Lipstick, Candied Apple, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot distress inks. Use Bright Gold Nuvo Crystal Drops to make the skiing stick of the penguin. Die cut the images using matching dies from Candy Cane Cottage Die and Season of Glee Die. Die cut 4 more pieces of white cardstock using the same candy cane cottage die and 1 more piece of white cardstock using penguin die. Adhere them together to make a thicker piece. Apply transparent holographic glitter to the penguin's cap and snow on the candy cane cottage.
Stamp the sentiment from Candy Cane Cottage Cling Stamp Set on a 1/2" x 6 1/2" strip of white cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink Pad so that the right side of the sentiment is almost 1/2" away from the edge.
Take a piece of 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of white cardstock and ink it lightly with Salty Ocean distress ink. Stamp the trees from Snow Kissed Spruce Cling Stamp Set side-by-side 6 times on this piece using Olive Archival Ink so that there is a 1" gap from the bottom edge to the base of the trees. Now again stamp the trees in the gap between the 2 trees using the same ink and 2nd generation stamping to get a lighter shade of trees. ink the trees lightly using Mowed Lawn and Gathered Twigs Distress ink.
Now make a horizontal slit in this piece on the bottom of the trees leaving a 1" gap from both the side edges. Adhere the top of 1/2" x 2 1/2" strip of Clear Cardstock to the back of the penguin so leaving 1/2" from the bottom unadhered. Slip the remaining piece of Clear Cardstock from the slit we made earlier and adhere it to the sentiment strip that we created earlier positioning them so that the sentiment is revealed when we pull the sentiment strip from the right side and the penguin slides out from behind the candy cane cottage.
Apply the Darice Adhesive Foam Strips so that there is enough gap on the right side of the candy cane cottage for the penguin can slide in and out freely and adhere it on the card front so that it hides the penguin when the sentiment strip is pushed in.
Stamp the leaves and flowers from Christmas Poinsettia & Holly Cling Stamp Set several times on a sheet of Vellum using Versamark ink. Heat emboss them using Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel and Heat It Craft Tool. Color them with Mowed Lawn Distress ink and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. Die cut them using matching dies from Christmas Poinsettia & Holly Die. Shape them using Groove Golf Tool Set and add a little I'm A-Maized Prills to the Poinsettia's center. Arrange and adhere them as shown on the card front. Glue some Medium Assorted Bead Stamens to the flower arrangement.
