Give it a Whirl Penguin Place Card

Here is a card example of using the Give it a Whirl Dies, the Penguin Place bundle along with new Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Paper. I love interactive cards and also love getting free items to make projects! This card uses the Penquin Place SAB paper, free with a $50 purchase until Sept. 30 or while supplies last. Another card example at the bottom of this blog uses the Peaceful Prints–both equally adorable!

Give it a Whirl

Measurements:

  • Basic White cardstock: 5.5″x 8.5, scored at 4.25″ along the 8.5″ side; (1) 3.75″ x 2 1/8″; (1) piece for 3 3/4″ square piece for dial die cut; piece for 1 3/8″ circle; piece for penguin punch
  • Fresh Freesia cardstock: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • Penguin Place Designer Series Paper: 4.25″ x 5.25″
  • White Glitter Paper: pieces for glacier, snowflake and icicle dies cuts; optional piece for hat and scarf
  • Basic Black cardstock: piece for penguin body
  • Pumpkin Pie cardstock: piece for feet punch

Preparation for Give it a Whirl card:

  • Using the Penguin Punch, punch the penguin body from Basic Black cardstock, the middle of the penguin with Basic White and the feet with Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Next, adhere pieces together. Note: the feet look good in front on the white or behind the black penguin body. Stamp the eyes in Tuxedo Black ink and the nose in Pumpkin Pie ink.
  • Make a circle template for stamping the penguins onto to the spinning wheel. This template will prevent the extra ink from getting in the other windows. To make the template, die cut the spinning wheel from Basic White cardstock and then die cut a window out of it, like Figure 1.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 1.
  • Next, die cut the DSP using the Give it a Whirl Frame. Punch a 1 3/8″ circle in Basic White cardstock.
  • Die cut the icicles and glacier from the Polar Bear dies, and the snowflake from the So Many Snowflakes Dies using white glitter paper (non-SU).
  • Then die cut a spinning wheel from Basic White cardstock. Place the template (made earlier) over the spinning wheel, by lining up the open window with the embossed window frame on the spinning wheel. Stamp the penguin in Tuxedo Black ink so that his head and part of his shoulder is stamped in the open window. (Note: the excess ink from his body will stamp on the template and keep the spinning wheel clean of excess ink.) See Figure 2.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 2.
  • Move the template so the open window is in the next embossed window area on the spinning wheel. Stamp again the penguin head and partial shoulders.
  • Move the template so the open window is in the last embossed window area on the spinning wheel. Stamp sentiment in Fresh Freesia ink.
  • Now you can remove the template and stamp a hat in Fresh Freesia on one penguin and antlers in Soft Suede on the other penguin and any other things you would like (for example, there are snowflakes that come with this stamp set, too!)
  • Punch a small hole in the center of the 1 3/8″ circle.
  • Take the 2.25″ x 3.75″ Basic White Cardstock and place the hill die from the Polar Bears dies at the very top along the 3.75″ side to create a hill. Then, emboss this piece with the Bark 3D embossing folder so the bark is going horizontal along the 3.75″ side.

Assembly:

  • Fold the Basic White cardstock base in half. Adhere and center the piece of Fresh Freesia to the cardbase.
  • Place a brad through the front of the spinning wheel and through the center of the 1 3/8″ circle and lightly close brad. (Note: if the brad is too tight, the wheel will not spin freely). Put 2 dimensionals on the back of the 1 3/8″ circle. This 1 3/8″ circle will allow the spinning wheel to move more freely, as shown in Figure 3.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 3.
  • Set the spinning wheel behind the DSP, and line up the holes on the front of the DSP and the brad. Hold these 2 pieces in place and turn the DSP over so you can tell where to place the dimensionals on the DSP, making sure not to place a dimensional where the spinner will be turning.
  • Only take the backings off the dimensionals on the 1 3/8″ circle. Then hold the DSP and the spinner together and center onto the 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ Fresh Freesia cardstock. This allows you to place where the spinner properly. See Figure 4.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 4.
  • Now take the backings off the dimensionals on the back of the DSP, by keeping the brad and hole on DSP centered, place onto the Fresh Freesia cardstock. See Figure 5.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 5.
  • Now it’s time for the rest of the decorations! Adhere the snow hill at the bottom of the DSP.
  • Next, adhere the glacier with dimensionals on the front of the card. Adhere the icicles to the upper left part of the DSP. Place the penguin on top of the glacier with dimensionals. Adhere the glitter snowflake over the hole on the front of the card.

Here’s some alternative colors for additional ideas. I fussy cut the hat and scarf by stamping them on the back of glitter paper and then cutting them out. I think they should all have hats and scarves to keep them warm!

Shimmery White cardstock: 3×3″
Highland Heather cardstock: 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″; 5.5″ x 8.5″ scored at 4.25″ along the 8.5″ side
Pool Party cardstock: 3.5″ x 4.5″
Whisper White cardstock: 3 5/8″ x 4 5/8″; 4″ x 5.25″ for inside
Snowflake Splendor DSP: 2″ x 4″
10″ ribbon

Directions for Snowman Season Snowball Card:

  • Die cut the largest stitched square from the Shapes die from Shimmery White Paper. Stamp the snowman in Memento Ink towards the top of the stitched square. Take the light Pool Party blend and trace around outside of snowman and ground to create a 3D look.
  • To make the banner, make a 1/2″ slit from the center of the Snowflake Splendor DSP along the 2″ side. Cut from the bottom corners to the top of the slit to form the banner shape.
  • Apply a small amount of puff paint to the Shimmery White square where you want the snowballs. Tip: You need just the smallest amount of puff paint to make the snowball (see Figure 1). If you put too much, just absorb the puff paint with a kleenex or paper towel and start again. Having too much puff paint will make the snowballs too big. Practice on scrap paper till you achieve the right size. I typically tilt the bottle tip to the side and apply the paper to the tip of the puff paint to control the amount of puff paint that comes out; i.e. do not completely face the tip of the puff paint down onto the paper.. Then apply heat with a heat gun to make the snowballs (Figure 2). Tip: Allow the heat gun to heat up before heating the puff paint.

  • Adhere and center snowman to square piece of Highland Heather. Wrap ribbon around bottom part of squares and tie a square knot to the front on the right side. Apply dimensionals to the back of the Highland Heather square. Straddle 2 of the dimensionals on the ribbon and paper to help keep the ribbon in place.
  • Stamp sentiment on the piece of pool party on the right hand side.
  • Adhere and center the Pool Party card stock to the smaller piece of white cardstock. Adhere and center to the Highland Heather card base.
  • Adhere the banner on top of the Pool Party card stock on the left hand side. Use the square snowman piece to help with centering, such that the banner will be centered under the squares.
  • Take dimensional backings off the Highland Heather square and adhere on top of banner.
  • Decorate card with snowflake sequins.
  • Adhere 4″ x 5.25″ white card stock to inside of card and stamp sentiment of choice.
