Singing Penguins Xmas Card

The Lawn Fawn "Here-We-Go-A Waddling" Xmas stamp and die set is probably my favorite one this year.  Paired with a landscape LF  die and a house print card stock by BellaBlvd this card came together really easily.  To make the snow covered hills more realistic I used Paper Accents Pearlized Cardstock.  Because this cardstock is slippery, I sprinkled the words and notes with embossing powder and used a heat gun to melt it onto the card.
Here is another version of the same card.  I can't decide which one is more appealing.  Which do you prefer?
This time I remembered to cut (with the LF die) the gift card slots into the inside of the card front before adhering the landscape frame and penguins with adhesive foam squares.  I will be giving more HM Ben Franklin Crafts gift cards this year mostly because they are so easy to purchase, mail, and I think the stores have something for everyone.  Also, I love turning my Xmas cards into gift card holders with the use of the Lawn Fawn easy!  Enjoy this Xmas Crafting Season!

This is so adorable, Lynn, what a great scene you created! Both cards are beautiful but since I love blue, I'm partial to that card. I think the blue also brings out the cute designer paper in the background even more. Sweet card!
