Tis’ the Season to be Freezin’

Today is my day to post on Miss Kate Cuttables.  It’s my last post of the year, but the good news is I’m continuing with Miss Kate for another year!

Before I share my project today, I want to remind you to pick up your Freebie of the Day…it’s like Christmas every day at Miss Kate’s!  Did you know Miss Kate also has a Deal of the Day and a $.50 Store.  So much happening over there!

Now for my card:

I’m not a fan of the cold weather, so it stands to reason I’m not big into outdoor winter sports and activities.  But that’s certainly not the case with these Penguins Sledding!  You can just see the delight on their faces as they race down that hill, can’t you?

For my DT post at Miss Kate Cuttables  I decided to turn the Sledding Penquins into a slider card.

I knew I wanted to make a slider card, but I had a hard time deciding between this cut file and the Penguins Ice Skating.  Either would have worked well!  If you want to see the progression of the sled on the slider, you can click on the card and it will take you to the gallery.

For the card, I used a retired Lavender Lace textured paper.  For the mountains, I used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillside Border Dies and the slider was made using Lawn Fawn’s Slide On Over Dies.  One of the slider dies has a curve to match the hillside, so it worked perfectly.

I cut a Lavender Lace panel the same size as the card front and applied all my pieces to that.  Then I used mounting tape to attach it to the card front being careful not to get too close to the slider.  I used Stampin’ Up’s Foam Adhesive Strips.  If you’re using mounting tape, double it.  I don’t think the tutorials would tell you this, but it’s at this point I tuck my penny behind the slider opening.  On the penny, I placed two round foam dots side by side to keep the sled from spinning 360 degrees.

The greeting  is from the Craftin’ Desert Divas set of the same name.  This is a great set…lot of choices.  Since this stamp is photopolymer, I was able to curve it to match the hillside.  As I finishing touch, I added white Nuvo Dots.

And here's the inside I made with another Miss Kate's cut file.

I used another cut file for the inside, ‘Tis the Season to be Freezin’.  Actually, I used just one of the words, but this is a really nice title and I plan on using it in its entirety some other time.

And one last thing before I go…I’d like to welcome Tina as my newest e-mail follower.  Thank you, Tina, for subscribing and welcome to the family.  You will now be entered in our card bundle drawing when I reach 100 e-mail followers…slowly…ever so slowly getting there. 😉
