Cool Yule

Wednesday, February 6, 2013



Okay, yeah, I know, it's February, almost Valentine's Day, not Christmas.  Well, I'm still feeling like I need to redeem my creative ability and this little guy was hiding in my photos and I discovered I neglected to post him over the holidays.  I made it for my oldest son, who loves penguins.


I started with a kraft card base, added a green ribbon along one side.  The background paper is from a prize pack I won from a fellow blogger, Jessi Fogan.  Click on her name and visit her blog with all her beautiful work and crafty wit.  The foreground paper is homemade using Dylusions paints on watercolor paper.  I distressed the edges of both background papers and added a border of red cardstock behind each.  The cute penguin pyramid stamp is by Repeat Impressions.  I stamped it on white cardstock, colored with Copics and added snow pen to the fur part of the hats.  I fussy cut the image, added a silver star brad and popped it up on the homemade paper.  The sentiment, from Repeast Impressions also,  was stamped directly onto the painted paper.  I finalized the card with two green and one red gems.

You are very welcome! And, then by those standards my family is quite normal because we are all penguin nuts! hahahaha Thank you.
