Want some penguin love

I just love this “Penguin Love” stamp set by Tubby Craft.

I used it to make a cute Christmas card.

The stamps leave a very sharp and crisp image.

And as they are flexible, you can be very creative with them!
Many designs in 1 stamp set, give you loads of options to mix  and match, like I have done in this card ;)

Here’s how I made this card:-

    Let’s prepare the base for the card:
 Cut a piece of White card stock of 14.5*10 c.m.
 Fussy cut the two hills.

   Now, take the White cardstock.
    Stamp the snow flake and star with Watermark   stamp pad & heat emboss it with  Clear Embossing     Powder.

  Colour the relevant portion (the ones above the hills) with Distress Inks.
I have used 3 colours and blended them to give this evening-sky effect!   Looks so Christmas-y :D
The Snow Flake stamps turned out to be magical!

   Now for my favourite part.

Take the Penguin stamp, put it on the acrylic block, cover it with the Black Dye Ink & stamp it on a piece of white card stock.

This stamp set comes with a cute,little scarf stamp which I covered with Red dye ink and stamped on to the 2nd penguin.

I coloured them with the Distress Inks. I love how these inks blend so easily and perfectly!

Fussy cut the penguins

  Take the Merry Christmas and Wishing sentiments, stamp them on a piece of white card stock and cut them.
I also stamped the Heart stamp along with Merry Christmas!

  Finally, assemble the card.

I love to give 3D effects to my cards, so I put foam tape below every piece.
I  have popped up all the stamped images and background and then adhered the assembled panel on White Cardstock of 270 gsm of 21*15 c.m., folded in half.

    Just to give more detailing, i gave the hills and the Christmas sentiment the stitched effect with a black marker.

    TADA!! You have a beautiful Christmas card for this season! :D

Thank you
