A Little Beach Time!

Another penguin from Whimsy Stamps!  This one is Penguin Beach Chair.  I think this such a cute image!

Birthday Cards-175

This was another masculine birthday card I made for a member of my family.   Making masculine birthday cards are always hard for me, coming up with the right image. Penguins seem to fit perfectly!

I used my Copics to color this one and have listed the colors I used at the bottom of my post.  This was fun to color and watch him come to life!

After coloring him, I used a die from My Favorite Things, Postage Stamp Stax (I’m not sure they are available anymore) to cut him out.  Using the same die, I cut a mat slightly larger than my image to mount him.  I really liked the look, so used two more for my sentiment.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp, Birthday Flowers.  I used some Silver embossing powder from Gina K on the sentiment.

I added some Midnight Blue Nuvo drops to the card and I was done.  I was really happy with the way this card turned out.  Hope you like it!

  1. Masculine cards can be hard (my neighbour doesn’t even like critters!) but you’ve done a brilliant job with this one – love the way you carry the colour palette through the patterned paper and the image…
