Penguin Ornament Shaker Card ~ Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #35

I was so excited when I found out my Snow Owl card was a winner last week at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  Thank you so much FCCB!

I wanted to be sure and make a card for this week’s challenge, which is a color and shape challenge.  You have to use the color green and a circle — and, of course, a Cricut cut.  If you want to be inspired, be sure and check out all the entries this week at the FCCB.

I decided to make a shaker card and this was my first time making one.  The sparkly lime green and pink cardstock is from Core’dinations Core Couture line.  The patterned paper is from the Holiday Stack by DCWV.

I used the ornament from the Joys of the Season cartridge.  I welded two together in Design Studio and also welded a small square at the bottom of each circle piece so that the card could stand on its own.  The little girl penguin is from Simply Charmed, the snowy slopes behind her from Country Life, the holly from Winter Woodland, and the Warm Wishes tag is from Very Merry Tags.

I cut the hanger part of the ornament from silver metallic cardstock and then embossed it in my Cuttlebug using the Herringbone folder.  I cut the snowflakes that shake around from a Martha Stewart border punch.

I put the silver ornament tops on the inside of the card too, along with another sprig of holly.
