Global Design Project - Penguin Place

This week's challenge is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) the designer's example, as shown above.

I was needing some cards for my team members this month and so I decided to give this layout a try, using the Penguin Place stamps.

Here is the card I designed.

Want to make this card?  Here is the recipe!

Card Base - Basic Gray Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Layer 1 - Pattern Party DSP - 3 3/4 x 4 3/4
Largest Circle - Basic Black Cardstock - 2 5/8 diameter
Smallest Circle - Basic White Cardstock - 2 3/8 diameter
Penguin Body - Black Glitter Paper - 2 x 1 1/2
Penguin Inside - Basic White Cardstock - 1 1/4 x 1 1/4
"Accessories" - Basic White Cardstock - scrap piece
Sentiment - Pumpkin Pie Cardstock - 1 3/4 x 1/4
Card Insert - Basic White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4

1.  Stamp the penguin image onto Basic White cardstock, using Black Memento ink.
2.  Stamp this same image onto the bottom corner of the card insert, Basic White cardstock.
3.  Stamp the nose image onto the penguin stamped image on the card insert and for the front of the card.  Use Pumpkin Pie ink..
4.  Using a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the present and hat in Gorgeous Grape ink and the scarf in Polished Pink ink.  Cut these items out with scissors.
5.  Stamp the hat onto the penguin on the card insert, using Polished Pink ink.  
6.  Stamp the sentiment using Black Memento ink, onto the piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.
7.  Using Just Jade ink, stamp the tree image across the top 1/3 of the Basic White circle.  I stamped 3 full strength images and two stamped off images, for a total of 5 trees.
8.  Stamp the second sentiment along the bottom of the card insert using Gorgeous Grape ink.
9.  Stamp the snow image around the penguin on the card insert, using Balmy Blue ink.

Next steps:
1.  Punch out the outside body of the penguin from the piece of Black Glitter paper.
2.  Punch out the stamped image of the penguin - the inside body.  Glue these over top of eachother.
3.  Using Balmy Blue ink and a blending brush, add some blue ink to the left hand side of the Pattern Party DSP.
4.  Cut a snowflake in half at the 2/3 point.  

1.  Place a strip of snail tape along the back sides of the Pattern Party DSP.  Wrap a piece of the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the front of the DSP and attach it to the adhesive on the back.  Place this at about 1/3 from the bottom.
2.  Glue the DSP piece on a diagonal to the front of the Basic Gray card base.
3.  Glue the large Basic Black circle over the black ribbon on the right hand side of the card.
4.  Glue the largest half of the snowflake on a diagonal to the bottom of the black circle, pointing to the bottom left hand corner.
5.  Glue the smaller part of the snowflake to the top of the black circle, on a diagonal, facing the top right hand corner.
6.  Overtop of the black circle, glue the "tree" stamped Basic White circle.
7.  Put dimensionals on the back of the penguin and attach it over top of the trees, on the right hand side of the circle.
8.  Put a mini dimensional on the present and attach it to the penguins left hand.
9.  Put a mini dimensional towards the top of the hat and place it on the penguin's head.
10.  Using mini dimensionals, attach the sentiment above the black ribbon, about half way onto the white circle.
11.  Colour 3 rhinestones using the light Night of Navy Stampin' Blend and attach them to the card.
12.  Glue the card insert into the card.

Here are all the "ingredients" that I used. 

I have a male on my team and so I changed up the colours to make it look a little bit more masculine.

I had a few left over pieces, so here is an alternate idea.
