Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone!  I made this card earlier this month to share over on the Stampavie blog.  I had to choose an image to use first.  (There are so many adorable Stampavie images that it can be hard to choose which one to use next!)  I decided to pull out this adorable Penguin and Tree image by Gillian Roberts.

I just love cute little penguin stamps and this one is definitely cute!  I used some patterned paper from Echo Park’s Season’s Greetings paper pad.  I added some bells and a silver filigree corner from Wild Orchid Crafts and some baker’s twine from my etsy shop.

I stamped the image on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink.  I colored it using these copic markers: C6, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, T5, E31, E33, Y35, Y38, YR18, E23, E25, E27, E29, BG53, R27, R46, R89, BG0000, BG000, colorless blender.  I die cut the image using a rectangle nestability die and then stitched it to a red cardstock layer.  I added some white fun flock to the penguin’s cap and some polar white flower soft below the image.  I also used some spica pens to add some glitter to the ornaments and star on the Christmas tree.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley's Grunge Christmas Postmarks stamp set.

Have a great day!
