Penguin-ing to look like a gift card holder!

Christmas is coming up fast!
I'm entering this card into two challenges:
Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 15 – Clever Gift Packaging and
Simon Says Stamp: Work it Wednesday August/September 2017.
I must be a little rusty with my crafting skills; I made a few obvious mistakes with this one. But I like how it turned out overall. I used the gift card holder die from Lawn Fawn for the base, covered the bottom to keep it snowy, and blended Distress Oxide inks in Faded Jeans and Broken China for the sky. After removing the paper at the bottom, the snow background stamp from Lawn Fawn's "Snow Cool" was used with Colorbox White Pigment Ink and Recollections Pearl Embossing Powder in Snow, heated to set.

The penguins and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn's "Here We Go A-Waddling". I stamped them on white cardstock with Memento Dye Ink in Tuxedo Black. The colors used for the penguins were Spectrum Noir True Black, GY4, DR3. and LG5. After cutting them out, I glued them on and stamped the sentiment in Colorbox Pigment Ink in Archival Black. Because I didn't use my MISTI, I couldn't re-stamp when it didn't take well the first time. I still added Recollections Detail Embossing Power in Ebony and headed to set it. A little glue on the tabs and it's ready to go.

Before gluing up.
