Hi lovely crafters, its inspiration Wednesday here and at Heartfelt Creations. 
Today I have a Christmas card up, with full instructions. See below.
I have used the gorgeous new 

Now I want to share with you an adorable collection that will bring a smile to your face! The Candy Cane Cottage collection is filled with the happiest little penguin scenes, a candy cane cottage, and peppermint candy canes. Plus there is a fabulous decorative die that comes along with the collection too. What I personally love about this collection is the childlike joy and carefree playfulness of the penguins at holiday time! They're not caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season, but instead are having a jolly good time! I believe you will love creating inspiration with this collection, the options are almost limitless, really!


  • Cover a 7 3/4 x 5 3/4 white card blank with pretty red paper from the Candy Cane Cottage Paper Pad, leaving a small gap all around the edges.
  • Take the Intricate Swirl Frames Die and die cut in white card. Adhere a pretty panel from the paper pad cut to 3 6/8 x 5 6/8 inches inside the frame.
  • Stamp with jet black ink the Candy Cane Cottage  twice, using the Candy Cane Cottage stamp. Colour in with your markers, die cut with the co ordinating die. Die cut a separate piece for the roof over-hang, die cut the small window circle, die cut the other window, die cut the door. Colour these in with your markers and adhere to each part with foam strips. Stamp and die cut the door frame, colour in and adhere to the door. Cut out another snowy front door step, adhere.
  • Stamp with jet black ink the penguin from the Merry Moments Cling Stamp set, colour in with markers, die cut with the co ordinating die. Adhere to the front of the Candy Cane Cottage with glue and foam strips.
  • Stamp with jet black ink, the small candy canes from the Season of Glee Cling Stamp Set, colour in with markers, die cut with the co ordinating die, adhere to the side of the penguin.
  • Stamp with coffee ink the poinsettias and holly leaves, colour in with markers, die cut with the co ordinating dies. Glue two sets of the flower petals together, offset the petals and add a small white stamen. Adhere with hot glue and add in the holly leaves. Adhere another holly leaf to the corner of the card, beneath the penguin. 
  • Add dries clear glue to all the parts you want to add glitter. Add ultrafine transparent glitter.
  • Cut out a sentiment from the paper pad, matt onto white card, adhere to the side of the door.
  • All done.
