Penguin Birthday

Well, I’m back to birthday cards!  I have quite a few coming up over the next several months and I needed to get started on them.

My great-nephew had a birthday recently and I choose this cute stamp from Whimsy Stamps.  Isn’t it just adorable!  It’s called Penguin Birthday.

I colored it up using my Copic markers.  I have listed the colors I used at the bottom of my post.  After coloring my image, I used Spellbinders Gold Labels Four to cut the image out.  I used the largest die, but wanted to mat my image, so I traced around the image with a pencil and “fussy” cut the mat out.

I used the “Happy Birthday” die from Simon Says Stamp.  I wanted to give it some shine and had some foil paper.  I wanted to see if I could foil the die.  I cut the die from some toner paper and then ran it through my laminator.  I was happy with the results so used it on the card.  (It is hard to take photos of foil!)

To finish the card, I added some Dazzling Blue Glitter Drops and some Dandelion Yellow Gloss Crystal Drops…I just had to add those Nuvo drops!
