Christmas Card Club- #19 Penguins & lots of Sparkle.

Well, I'm finally back,even if a little late for this week.
Every time I sit down to have a little rest, I wake up 3 or 4 hours later! But if thats the worst side effect I get from the Radiotherapy, I'll count myself lucky.
 I started these on Saturday, doing the stencil paste, and I used a Sweet Poppy stencil of a Penguin Snowglobe.
 I intended to make the black one all glitter, but due to poorly functioning brain cells, I mixed the Black Glitter with Black paste, instead of Translucent, so it's really hard to see that its glittery in the picture.
Its matted onto Black glitter card, and has black Happy Christmas Peeloffs in the corners.
 I used 6"x6" card bases, and the card is covered with a sheet of paper from a pad I picked up at Happy Stampers last year, called Jingle all the Way.











 The top two cards are both done with Hot Foil, one in Holographic Gold, the other in Holographic silver.




 The backing paper here is from a really old Christmas Pad, it might have been Dovecraft, not sure. Then the image was matted onto Silver Glitter card.
In the corners is Seasons Greetings, in a small peeloff again. I'm trying to use those up too,lol.












Final one of the three is this one.

This time the backing paper is one from Craft Creations, with Happy Christmas printed across it in gold,on an Ivory paper.
 It's matted on Gold Glitter card, with tiny peeloffs.
