Wobbling Penguin Card


Here's a fun card that I made for my niece, who is currently obsessed with penguins. The penguin is attached to the card with an Action Wobble, so she can make him wobble like a bobble head! Very fun!

I used the "print and cut" feature on my Imagine with the Snow Angel cartridge for the patterned paper and the icicles. I made the snowflake paper by cutting a 4" square with rounded corners, and then trimmed it to 4" x 3 3/4". The icicles were cut from the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art Cricut cartridge at 1.5", flood filled with Snow Angel colors.

Because I wanted a stiff cardstock for my penguin to be able to wobble easily, I used the "cut only" feature on my Imagine and cut him on Papertrey Ink cardstock. The penguin is cut at 3" from Create a Critter, and his Santa hat is cut at 6" from Paper Doll Dress Up. I cut the hat once in red and once in white to create the layers.

The white base of the card is 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2", and the red layer is 4" x 5 1/4". I used my Corner Chomper on all of the corners.
