Penguin Family

Hi HH Fans!
For today's "Christmas in July" post over on the High Hopes Blog I am sharing with you a little gift set I made using the adorable "Penguin Family".
I love this little family and thought they would be super cute paired with the Winter wonderland Background stamp. I used my MISTI to create the scene, which worked super easy! I also added the High Hopes "Think Snow" sentiment on the front of my card. When I coloured the trees I left a bit uncoloured so that I could add some White Wink of Stella to make it look like snow on the branches. A bow with a candy gem finished off my card.
On the inside, more of the matching papers and a sentiment called "Holiday All Year".
The little Kraft Paper bag is a Dollar Store find and I just added paper to match from the Echo Park Tis The Season 6x6 collection. I tied a bunch of ribbon on the side for a fun embellishment.

In the bag you could put a small present or gift card but I made a small magnet for fun out of the same image! I recently purchased the Xyron Creative Station Lite, which has a laminate/ magnetic combo rather than just adhesive. Super cool and a fun way to make something different with your stamps!
Copics Used:
Penguin: C1, C4, C6, C8/ YR14, YR18
Sleigh: E43, E44, Gold Wink of Stella
Skates: C1, Silver Wink of Stella
Trees: YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99, White Wink of Stella
Snowflakes and ground: B0000, B000, B00
