Penguin Pair

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

When I saw this Xcut die, I loved how cute it looked, but also how great it would be to make a dent in the scrap pile.  They were a bit fiddly to slot together, but after a couple attempts (these were my 3rd and 4th), it got a lot easier.  And yes, since the photo was taken I have given them rhinestone eyes, so they can see!

Card: Black, White and Smokey Slate scraps
Tools and embellishments: Large 3d Penguin die from Xcut

The die isn't actually that large, as the birds stand just over 4" tall, and belly to wing tip (uncreased) they are just over 3 1/4".  Regardless, they are SO cute!

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
