A Cricut Penguin

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hope everyone is staying warm! We are having very cold weather in my area, plus have been under ice storm warnings for a couple of days. Thankfully we did not get the ice - just more rain after about 8 inches of rain last week. Schools have been dismissed for a couple of days and I have also been off work for the two days. So I have been playing with paper!
My card is from white cardstock and measures 5" x 6 1/2". The patterned paper is from K&Company EB Visions of Christmas pad that my friend gave me for Christmas. My friend is very sick at this time and I wanted to make her a card. Solid papers are from the scrap stash.
Cricut Cartridges:
Winter Frolic - Page 57 - Penguin is cut 3.5". I do believe this is my first penguin cut. With wonderful inspiration from the design team at Die Cuttin Divas, I was inspired to try a penguin for my card.
Page 57 - Border  is cut at 1". I used two of this image on the front and one on the inside of card.
Page 56 - Phrase and Phrase shadow "For You" is cut 1.5".
Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 - Page 47 Phrase"Warm Wishes" is cut 1.75" and used on the inside of the card.

Inside of card.
Other supplies include an Action Wobble on the cute little penguin. Sorry, I was unable to get a good photo of the wobble. Ribbon is 3 Girl Jam and inking is Versa Magic Gingerbread.
