When I bought the Polar Pals set I was convinced I would only ever use it for Christmas however, when a work colleague told me he was leaving us to go to France for 6 months to be a Ski Instructor, I knew that little penguin would be ideal to make a card for him. (he’s also an Arsenal fan so the hat and scarf just had to be red!)
I started by tearing three pieces of Whisper White cardstock into strips to make the ski slope and, before sticking down, I stamped some treetops using Old Olive with a stamp from Lovely as a Tree. The little penguin was stamped, coloured with markers and cut out and I attempted to make something, which I hope will pass as skis, from Brushed Silver cardstock and stuck these onto the slopes with the penguin positioned on top. To finish the card off I made some little flagposts and added some Dazzling Diamonds before stamping the sentiment from Sincere Salutations. The whole thing was matted onto Night of Navy cardstock and then onto a card blank.
