Hi, the Penguin Place bundle is so versatile. You can use it over and over to create cards for so many different occasions – love, Christmas, friendship and more. Today we are making a birthday card.
To start, take a sheet of Basic White Thick cardstock and create your card base. Attach some paper from the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper (this is a paper pack that could be yours for FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration). I then attached another strip of patterned paper to the left-hand edge of the card front but added a small mat of Misty Moonlight cardstock.
Next, take a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut two panels with a large die from the Hippo & Friends die set. Die-cut two so that you can tear off the bottom of one piece to add a little more interest to the card front (after you have sponged the background and stamped and embossed the snowflakes). You could even pop up this piece if you wanted.
I stamped the penguin from the Penguin Place stamp set as well as the rest of the parts of the penguin, the present and balloons. I then punched out the penguin and fussy cut all the other pieces, including some trees from the coordinating Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper. I also stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on a small piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock.
For something a little different, I split some of the strands of the white Baker’s Twine apart and tied it to the end of the balloons. I thought it would be a cute touch.
After all of this was done, I adhered all the parts together and popped it up on the card front. The final touch was to add a coating of Wink of Stella.
Here’s the card…
This was such a fun card to make. I love that you can get such a different look each time you create with the Penguin Place bundle. If you want to start creating cards like these, all the products can be found in my online store. Let me know if you have any queries.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
