Merry Christmas a cute shaped card/tag featuring Mama Elephant!

Update: I'm the Weekly Winner at Christmas Card Challenges! I'm super happy! thank you so much!! :) 




Welcome!!
This week I enjoyed a lot the new Mama Elephant flickr challenge " make it shaped"!
I just have some circular and rectangle dies and I usually use them to make the base of my card... I'd love to have a star shape and while I was thinking about my wish list for Santa I decided to make a Christmas project! 
Here's what i created...! 


A shaped card! I call it a card-tag because it is both a card and a tag! I wanted to create something special for my lovely ones these days.. so i made this for my mum! She loves keeping all the cards and tags from every Christmas but what she likes the most it's recycle them into... paper ornament! Let me explain... Do you have a super funny Christmas Tree decorated with old tags, fronts of cards and winter postcards?! I do!! I mean my mum does.. so do I ! :)
Ahah! That's the reason I added a gold twine to make it a paper ornament too!
On the back i applied a little folded circular card to write my sentiment. I die cut all the penguins with their coordinate dies using the inlaid die cut technique and i cut with scissor all the space in between them! I don't know where i found that patience! ahah! :)
I love it, it's like the earth with all those little penguins going around! :)
