Penguin gift box

How cute is this little fellow?

My curvy keepsake die came this morning and I was dying to try it out and this is my first attempt.  He needs a bit of tweaking - his feet aren't right, neither are his wings (or are they flippers?) but I'm happy with the effect.  I've seen lots of different ideas on the internet and so my penguin is a combination of various ones I have seen so I can't credit one person for the idea.

Next I want to do Father Christmas and a snowman :)

Card in a box

It's my daughter in law's birthday on Thursday and as I haven't made a card in a box for a while, I thought I'd make one but a long one rather than a square one.

I made an envelope using the envelope punch board as my card ended up 6" x 6.5" so a bit of an odd size.  I didn't have a big enough piece of paper in the right colour but I thought this was a pretty good match.


I hope she likes it:)

The only thing that aren't SU are the balloon stamp and die.
