Winter Snow Globe Penguin Card

As I am a scrapbooker, I have always tried to creatively use my leftover and scraps of paper.

I tend to use a lot more cardstock than patterned paper. I like the simple look I get from it.

Also, I find that I prefer a less cluttered look to my crafts.

Patterned paper used well can be stunning. Often though, it can overwhelm my eyes and be theme specific.

Cardstock is lovely and plain with a bit of texture, and it can create the most beautiful items.

That is my argument for using a lot of cardstock with a sprinkle of patterned paper.

This winter snow globe penguin card uses scraps from my Winter layout I created. I had strips of paper, and wanted to make a fun card.

I created a fun snowglobe in Cricut Craft Room.

These are the cartridges that I used.

Winter Woodland – Winter Fun title

Create a Critter – Penguins

Joys of the Season – Snow Globe.

Here is the downloadable Cricut Craft Room cut file.

I added a couple cute penguins and a greeting for my card.

I had the strips of lime and aqua left over, and decided that I wanted to use dark brown instead of black for the penguins.

I love the vibrant colors. Once I got my snow globe created, I tore strips of white paper and glued them to the white part of the globe.

Then I trimmed them off so I had a base to set my penguins in.

I layered them, cutting the details out of white and using markers to color in. I used chalk on their cheeks to give them a cute glow.

After I added the penguins, I also used markers to create an ombre effect on the words. I just colored the letters in lighter on the bottom and then darker at the top of the letters.

When I had finished the snow globe, I added a touch of brown and blue chalk to highlight it, then added foam tape to the back of it, and added it to my card base.

For a final detail, I used glitter fabric paint dabbed onto a paper towel and dabbed it for snow on my penguins in the snow globe.
I love the glitter effect!
