more winter penguin cards

Hi everyone, I have a few more cards to share with you today that I created with my new set Winter Penguin and my new patterned paper Holiday Flourishes & Swirls from the Papertrey Ink November release.


Both of these cards measure 4 1/4" square and are easy to mail in a regular A2 size envelope. I first stamped a background with the snowflakes in Chai ink on Rustic Cream cardstock. I distressed the edges with Chamomile and Chai ink. If you haven't already seen it, Betsy Veldman's Make it Monday video for this week features stamping sentiments to achieve the same kind of background look.


I stamped the penguins onto my stamped background in True Black ink and colored their beaks and feet with Copic markers. On the card with the "jingle all the way" sentiment, I added some little rusty jingles bells on a Rustic Jute button twine string for the penguin to hold. On the card with the "winter wishes" sentiment I have the penguins holding hands and wearing their cute little striped hats.

This month, my patterned paper collection has a holiday theme combining images from Peace be Still and Fancy Flourishes. The colors that coordinate with this collection are Fine Linen, Ripe Avocado, and Scarlett Jewel. The paper collection retails for $8.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
