DSP of your choice for base: 4" x 5 1/4",  3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Basic White: 3" x 8", scored at 4".  Scrap for Sentiment and another for body of penguin
DSP for pocket card: 2 7/8" x 3 7/8"

Basic Black: scrap for penguin punch
Crushed Curry: scrap for feet (can you any color you want really like Pumpkin Pie, Bumble Bee)

For this different card, I used the Penguin Paper that was part of the Sale-a-Bration in Aug-Sept 2021.  You can get this FREE with a $50 or more purchase.  Ask me how you can get something Free!!!!

Adhere the DSP to the Just Jade card base.  Mind you, this base is just making a pocket and does not open up.  You are putting a smaller card into the pocket (and it's sooooo cute).  

Take the square DSP and adhere to the Just Jade square.  Cut this in two with your paper trimmer to form two equal triangles.  Now you have an extra triangle for another card.  Adhere this triangle to the left side of the card with Tear & Tape.  I use this tape because it is strong and won't pull your card apart putting the little card in and out.  Put the tape along the edges.  

Take your Fresh Freesia pieces and cut out the scalloped rectangle and sentiment matte.  You can use the regular or Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Take the scrap Basic white piece and cut out the sentiment with the small die.  Stamp your sentiment in Fresh Freesia ink and attach this to the Freesia cardstock matte.  Adhere the sentiment to the triangle portion of the pocket card with either glue, adhesive or Stampin' Dimensionals to give it lift.  

Take the long Basic White cardstock, fold it and burnish it with a bone folder.  Adhere the DSP to the front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Stampin' Seal.  

With the Penguin Builder punch (this is part of the bundle, where you can save 10% buying the stamp and punch together), punch out the penguin with the Black cardstock.  Punch out the body with the scrap of white cardstock.  Use the Crushed Curry for the feet.  Stamp the eyes onto the body using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The nose is stamped in Crushed Curry.  I usually stamp the body before adhering to the penguin in case I made a mistake.  Assemble the penguin with glue. 

I stamped the balloon onto the scalloped Freesia cardstock.  First, I stamped off (this means I inked my stamp, stamped onto waste paper and then stamped onto the cardstock) to give it a little background.  I added the strings to the balloons the same way.   Once stamped, I stamped my sentiment in Just Jade ink at the bottom of the rectangle.  Then I adhered the penguin to the Freesia cardstock with glue or adhesive.  Finally, I added that piece to the front of the little card.  

On the inside of the little card, I added another little matching sentiment in Jade ink and decorated with a stamped Freesia balloon and black string.  Tuck your card in and embellish with some Champagne rhinestones and you are done.  

Here is the same card with a different pattern.  Products listed below.
