Anything Goes for Cute Card Thursday

Hello friends and welcome to another Thursday!  Hope you are staying cool and enjoying your Summer so far!  I am looking forward to lots of fun in the coming months and into the Fall Season as well, so I still have many things to share with you and what I’ve been working on!

Thursday brings another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday as well!  We have a very easy ANYTHING GOES this week and we are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps!

The sponsor was kind enough to donate some images for the DT and so I’ve used one on my creation for today:


I just thought this penguin was just as cute as can be!  I’ve used the Whimsy Stamps digital image called Penguin Loves Watermelon.  I had so much fun coloring in this cute image!  I actually decided to cut him away from the scene he was on so I could just pop him up by himself on my card.

Watermelon is something that I love to eat during the Summer when it’s in season.  I had this punch that made the perfect sized “seeds” and so I thought I’d add some on the image as well as on the card I made. (Looks like he’s spitting out seeds! LOL!)  I covered the watermelon that the penguin is holding with the Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.  I covered the “seeds” with some clear sparkling Nuvo drops.

If you want to make one of these cards yourself, I found this cute template on this website here:  CLICK HERE  I ended up just printing the template directly on my decorative papers and then cut each one out.  I just cut out the “bite” with my scissors after attaching the layers.  I sponged some coordinating ink on the edges of each layer.  I think you could also easliy use a circle die cut and make your own version of this type of card as well.  My finished and folded card measures approximately 3.75 x 6.25 inches.  The sentiment comes from a retired clear Whimsy Stamps set from my stash.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my creation and I hope that you will join us this week over at Cute Card Thursday!  Look forward to seeing your creations!

Don’t forget to share some smiles today!  🙂
