Penguin Birthday Card

December 31, 2016

I don’t know how it happened or how I survived, but I did. I have made it through another December. The kiddos had a great holiday season with visits to Santa, plays, gatherings with family and friends, baking sessions, and many gifts to open. My poor blog has been much neglected this month. I am taking this last day of 2016 to post everything I made in December. The details may be scarce but at least there are pictures.

This is the card my daughter made for her GG. We have discovered how wonderful watercolor pencils are. She was able to color the sky and igloos and then blended the colors together with water. The effect is a beautiful sky.



Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  We started by stamping the images and sentiment on the card base. We used a blue ink for the snow images to make them look colder. My daughter used watercolor and regular colored pencils to color her card front. We blended the watercolor pencils out for the soft sky and snow. Lastly, I heat embossing some white snow on the sky.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Snow Cool

Memento Dew Drop in Bahama Blue


Hope you enjoyed the card
