Hi there. No surprise, I have another Christmas card to share. ‘Tis the season, isn’t it? I wanted to make a joyful kids card. I was tempted to pull out my favourite elves stamp set again, but I gave them a break. *lol* Instead I went back to those cute Waddles penguins.
On a white stitched rectangle, I stamped with black Memento ink and masked all images. With the masks in place, I sponged Real Red ink through a Candy Swirl stencil to add more depth. Looking back, I should have skipped this step and kept the design really simple. I coloured with Copics.
The sentiment was white heat embossed and I drew the string with a Copic multiliner to attach the tag to the gift. To accent the card, I added silver sequins and clear Wink of Stella to the hat and coloured ribbons. To finish, the panel was mounted to a white top folding card base.
