Funny how some things inspire you to create!  I saw an igloo when I was thinking about different shaped cards and came up with this using Stampin' Up!'s No Peeking stamp set!  And, it's a normal sized card, so no extra postage required!



So, I know I'm going to get questions about the details…here you go!

  1. The larger part of the igloo is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4, the fold is on the left side.  I used a lid and cut the top on a curve.
  2. The smaller part of the igloo is 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, cut twice.  I used a smaller lid to cut the top into a curve on this one, too.  One piece is added to the front, and the second is added to the back of the inside (see other picture).
  3. Cut a 1 1/2" x 2" piece of Basic Black cardstock, curve the top of it the same way and adhere over the smaller igloo piece, lining it up at the bottom.
  4. Use the Dazzling Details and draw around the edges on the front and draw ice "bricks" across the front.  Let dry.
  5. Stamp the penguin from No Peeking in Black Stazon and Raspberry Ripple, cut out the hat and scarf from the Raspberry Ripple and layer over the black.  (Before stamping, remove black ink from eyes and beak and use Marina Mist and Pumpkin Pie Markers).  Pop up the penguin in front of the igloo with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp No Peeking in Black Stazon and color in the words with Raspberry Ripple Marker.  Stamp the bird in Raspberry Ripple Ink, and color the scarf with Marina Mist Marker.

What I like is that this is also a gift card holder!



  1. Here you can see where the other small igloo fits in the back.
  2. Ignore the To/From greeting that is stamped crooked!  It really isn't as bad as it looks in the photo!  lol!
  3. I added a 2 x 4 piece of Snow Festival Designer Paper and adhered only the bottom and sides to form a pocket on the inside that holds a gift card!


Isn't it fun?  I loved how it turned out!  And…I will fix that To/From!  lol!
