For this challenge I created a wintery Christmas card using the Lawn Fawn – Winter Penguin stamp set along with the matching Winter Penguin die. I stamped the penguin in Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It blending paper and colored him with Copics:
C5, C4, C2
R39, R37, R35
G28, G07, G03
YR18, YR14, YR12
I stamped the little snowflakes from the same stamp set with a light blue ink onto some X-Press It blending paper. I cut that piece out using a die from the Lawn Fawn – Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables die set. I also cut a partial sheet of light blue from the Lawn Fawn – Peace, Joy, Love 6×6 paper pad with the same die to use as ice. I stamped ‘happy’ and ‘holidays’ from the same Winter Penguin stamp set. The little red heart was cut out using the smallest die from the Lawn Fawn – Hearts die set.
The red background piece is from the same Lawn Fawn paper pad and is cut out using a die from the Lawn Fawn – Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables die set.
The card base is the Lawn Fawn – Navy Woodgrain Notecard.
Everything was adhered using the Crafter’s Companion – Adhesive Runner and dimensional foam adhesive.
I added a bow using the MarkerPOP – Sweet Holiday baker’s twine. I don’t think this twine could be any more perfect for Christmas! To finish everything off I added some Wink of Stella Glitter Pen in Clear to the penguin, snowflakes, and heart. I also added some Glossy Accents to the penguin’s beak and the heart for some shine.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with for this ‘Winter/Christmas’ challenge! 🙂
