Happy Silly Penguins

posted in: Blog, jeni 0

Hi, Jeni here with a fun and silly Christmas card using the happy penguins from Brring on The Joy stamp set.  I trimmed a piece of Neenah white card to 12 x 9 cm and die cut a tag shape three times keeping the space between each tag the same.  I traced the inside tag shapes onto a piece of watercolour card so I could stamp the penguins coming in from all sides.  I made sure that each penguin would be at a different angle and would come in from the sides and the top of the tag shapes, erasing my pencil lines when this was done.  I filled in with the trail of lights, stars, snowflakes and candy canes.  I also randomly stamped the stars and snowflakes onto another piece of watercolour card to use as my background.Happy-Penguin-Card

I trimmed the piece with the penguins stamped so it would fit behind the white card and used my Zig markers to colour all the images in. I kept the colouring simple with just a grey for the penguins, and red, blue, green and yellow.  The colours I used are listed below.  I also coloured in the stars on the background piece.  Before adhering the white card to the penguins I stamped the sentiment “It’s Penguin-ing to look a lot like Christmas” with black ink.Happy-Penguin-CardI used tape runner to adhere the white card to the penguin coloured piece and popped this up with foam tape to the background piece.  I adhered this to a 4.25 x 5.5″ card base.

How are you getting on with your Christmas Card making? Do you have many more to make?
