The background is a little hard to see in the photo, but it is Cuttlebug's snowflake embossing folder. Ruth is so good at reusing and very crafty. She reused a insurance folder to make the blue with white stripe octagon from Spellbinders. She was crafty and used our penguin in a couple of different ways. The penguin on the left was stamped on a reverse stamp and then on a couple of them, she cut off one of their arms and glued it back on so the arm pointed down. The white cardstock that they are on is tore with glitter glued on it. It is a really cute card, thank you Ruth Fladhammer!
