I always make my Great Nieces and Nephews a special Christmas card. This year was no exception.
I choose Penguin Elf from Whimsy Stamps as my image and colored them using my Copic markers. The image was one I received as an extra from my Kit and Clowder monthly coloring classes. I don’t believe that it is available for purchase, but there are several other cute penguin stamps available. I made 12 of these cards, so that was a lot of coloring.
This is a digital image, so there is no matching die. I wanted to cut them out and mount them on a mat, but that was going to be a lot of fussy cutting! I recently purchased a ScanNCut2 by Brother, and decided to try it out. I loved how it cut each of the images out for me in less time that I could have cut even one out! I must say, I am impressed with the ScanNCut2.
I have some Christmas paper, but not enough of the same paper for all 12 cards. I found some great digital paper from We Are 3, so I was able to print enough for all of the cards. I recently purchased the Stitched Mod Rectangles from My Favorite Things and decided to use one of the rectangles to cut some paper to mount my Penguin on. I loved the paper, and didn’t want to throw out the left over piece, so decided to use it on the inside of the card. It made a perfect frame for my sentiment. The sentiment on the inside is from Simon Says Stamp, Believe.
