Penguin Playmates Christmas Card Tutorial

This week, I’ve focused on using products from Stampin’ Up!’s current Sale-A-Bration sale.This sale allows you to earn FREE items with minimum purchases of $50 and $100 before tax and shipping. Choose from 10 different items.

I love the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper, especially the side of the paper without the penguins. Weird, right? But, the colors lend themselves to so many projects.

See this post for cards created with the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and the Penguin Playmates DSP.

Please enjoy this free Penguin Playmates Christmas Card Tutorial.
