Hello and happy Sunday! Hopefully everyone is recovering from Christmas and New Year's. Today's card was created for the latest 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge. I fell in love with the sketch as soon as I saw it. I have tons of patterned paper and it was not only an excuse to break out some of the fun papers I've been hoarding but to color up a fun new digital image I purchased on Etsy. To create my card I started by layering some real red cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my white A2 card base. I then layered a piece of patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Be Merry 6x6 paper pad on top. Using the bottom portion of that paper that I trimmed down I flipped it over and adhered it to more red cardstock and adhered that to the left of my panel. I colored the adorable penguin image I purchased on Etsy using my Copic markers and die cut the image using a pierced edge oval die from My Favorite things. I die cut another oval using more real red cardstock and a Spellbinders die. I adhered the red oval directly to the card panel and then popped the focal panel up using foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Hello mini stamp set using Gina K Designs red hot ink and adhered that to more real red cardstock and trimmed it out into a little panel that I popped up to the lower right of the focal panel. I added a few snowflakes to the penguin image using Gina K Designs ocean mist ink and a stamp from the Papertrey Ink Winter Snow Globe stamp set. Thank you for stopping by my blog!
