Christmas penguin x 4

Good morning everyone, I hope that all is well with you and that it's not raining where you are.
I was wearing my Christmas head on Sunday so I had to make Christmas cards and here they are :o)





I cut and folded white hammered card to 5x7, my favourite size cards. 
All of the backing photographs were taken at Elvaston Castle and the penguin was taken at Twycross Zoo.
I feathered the penguin and added it to each background photograph, then added a sentiment. I printed, cropped and layered them onto plain black card. The tree, holly and snowflakes are all Memory Box die cuts. That's all there is to them, all quite simple :o)

Hello Jackie. I wish I could motivate myself to get started on Christmas cards, I keep putting it off.
Anyway your cards are gorgeous, I do have a bit of a soft spot for penguins. I love the way you have merged the images.

Hope you have a good day
Hugs Sue
