Penny Black and Pop 'n Cut Penguins

Kelly Booth is the master of Pop 'n Cut cards!  I've watched her become more and more creative with the Pop 'n Cut dies and I admit to being very jealous of her ability to make these darling cards!

Several months ago I used a coupon and purchased the "starter" Pop 'n Cut platform and die.  I haven't been able to find the "insert" dies locally and set the whole project aside.  Can you imagine my surprise and delight when I arrived home from our trip to find a large box from Kelly containing Pop 'n Cut dies and some embossing folders that she was ready to share!!  No more excuses; time to practice up!

I love this double sided green and red cardstock that I found at a local discount store; just perfect to make the base card.  The scallopy border is a Sizzix die; the "Merry" is a creative die from Penny Black.  While the front of a Pop 'n Cut card is necessary, the fun begins when you open it!


And this is what is inside!  Little penguins from Penny Black's transparent set Whooo's Wishing.

Aren't these penguins adorable all in a bunch!!  I actually turned the card upside down to make that label a platform for the penguin!

I don't know about you, but these cards make me smile big!  And they force me to spend more time and work a bit more slowly than I do when making regular cards. 

Big thank you's to Kelly for sharing her dies!  How I wish I could spend time with her and absorb some of what she knows!!

Happy Sunday!!  We are due for a warming trend next week.  It's been downright penguin-like chilly!!

I appreciate your visit.

Judy, you're a natural! More, please! :) Also, I tell my students the same thing about the fronts of Pop 'n Cuts cards - no need to double your work - just a simple lead-in to the magic inside. OPEN is how this card will be displayed! Love it.
