Love Penguins (seriously who doesn't?!) I designed this card for my Christmas Card Workshops and I can happily say it has been one of the favorites so far this year. The card base is Slate cardstock and the tag cut is from Cricut Art Philosophy, cut at 4.5". The patterned background paper is from the White Pine Paper collection and the stamped snowflakes, penguins and the sentiment inside the card are from the Season's Greetings (B1483) stamp set and stamped in Lagoon and Black ink.
After I stamped and fussy cut out the penguins I coloured in the scarf and hat accents using my Lagoon Alcohol Marker which is a retired CTMH product but we do have the Shin Han Markers available and the Turquoise Blue would also be a great match. I used the retired CTMH marker as I lent my Shin Han markers to my mom because she colours her images way more than I do. As I stamped my penguins using dye ink I was very careful to try not to touch the black while I coloured as dye ink will bleed, if I was doing more colouring I would have used a pigment or permanent ink.
To finish off my card I added a bow using Glacier Extra Thick Twine, a strip of Silver Foil Tape and White Shimmer Trim and the big snowflake is from the White Pines Complements.
Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments.
