Chilly & Ring Accordion
Talk about exciting times, when I first saw Karen Burniston's latest dies I was so thrilled and just couldn't wait to get my hands on them. I snipped them all apart & got to creating....like right away. This was the very first card I created using Chilly the Penguin & the Ring Accordion die.
The Ring Accordion die cuts one panel just like Karen's other Accordion dies, I cut three for this card & attached them in the usual manner (tabs are mountain then valley). The die comes with a scallop decorator piece that you will cut 4 times to go around the edges of the circles, I used Silver Glimmer on this card and it cut through perfectly.
You can get 2 different looking penguins from the same die depending on how you cut the colors. The girl penguin has the base piece in black with the accessory piece in white. For the boy penguin, I did the opposite. I used the Props die to make her bow & his hat.
I made the igloo with the circle die included in the Ring Accordion, cut the bottom off & used the Oval Accordion dies to make the door. To accent the snow cubes I used Soft Sky Stampin' Write Marker & a ruler.
