Winter Penguin ATC - Swap

Hi Everyone! This is a winter penguin I made for a ATC with theme being winter wonderland. I have to say making my first ATC was sooooo very difficult. It was hard to fit something into the small 2.5"x3"5 size. Well, hope you like what I made. The penguin was made using Inkscape and cut with SCAL, the svgs for which you can download by clicking here. When you look at the files, the tummy of the penguin is deliberately cut out, so the background shows through. A variation can be to cut a white circle and use as the tummy layer. The SVG file "winter penguin copy.svg" has all the layers and how they are assembled, rest of the svg files are the individual layers to import into SCAL to cut. The background is a some cut from some art my daughter made. Below is an image of the SVG in Inkscape and the end result.
