All I Want for Christmas is...Dew Drops!!!

If you still need some ideas for finishing your Christmas cards, you can't go wrong with Dew Drop embellishments. They give your cards that extra "Wow!"   I've made three cards to share with you featuring Silver Dew Drops, Ruby Red Diamonds, & Jade Diamonds.

Penguin with Snowflakes Card:

Robin's Nest Supplies:
Red Snowflake Cardstock, Winter Snowflakes Glitter Chipboard, White Alpha Stickers, Tender Teal Archival Seeds, Metallic Silver Dew Drops
Other Supplies: 
Jet Black Archival Ink Pad (Ranger), Penguin Stamp W137 (Stampendous), Glossy Accents (Ranger), black permanent marker, card base 5x7"

Directions: Penguin with Snowflakes
1. Cut a piece of Red Snowflake Cardstock slightly smaller than the card base.


2. Stamp the penguin image onto white cardstock, color, and fussy cut. Adhere a white Archival seed to the end of the penguin's hat. Add a realistic shine to the penguin's eyes by applying a thin layer of Glossy Accents over them. Set aside to dry.

3. Create the greeting by taking the needed white letter stickers off the backing sheet and placing them temporarily onto a piece of transparency. Next, use a permanent black marker to color the letters.

4. Embellish three chipboard glitter snowflakes with Metallic Silver Dew Drops.

5. Finally, assemble the card. Adhere the Red Snowflake Cardstock to the card base. Add the penguin to the lower left corner. Adhere the card greeting by holding the transparency over the card to help you find the perfect placement.  Lastly, attach the snowflakes.
