Ho! Ho! Ho! Anything Goes at Cute Card Thursday!

Hello friends!  Hope that you are having a good week.

Today is Thursday which means that it’s time for another Cute Card Thursday challenge!  Yay!  This week we have our monthly “Anything Goes” challenge, so please be sure to enter whatever you’re making this week!  We’d love to see what you come up with!

We are also sponsored by the lovely Whimsy Stamps this week and they have provided an image for each of our design team to use.  I have been wanting to get going on making some Christmas…so here’s my card:


I just adore these sweet and fun penguins that Crissy Armstrong comes up with at Whimsy Stamps.  I’m using the Penguin Light Me Up digital stamp on my card here.

I have colored it with Copic markers and gel pens.  I thought it would be fun to stamp some snowflakes in the background, so I’ve used the Whimsy Stamps Penguins Winter Adventure stamp set for the background as well as the sentiment from the same set for my tag.  My tag was cut out using a tag die from my stash and then I added some gold thread to the top and attached it to the card with foam tape.

I’ve mounted this image panel onto a gold foil cardstock piece and then attached it to a couple of layers of festive plaid papers which was mounted onto a white top folding square card base.  I sponged some gold ink around the edges and added stitching detail with my gold gel pen.  Lastly, I’ve added some gold ribbon tied in a bow at the top corner and also some dimensional snowflake accents.

Here’s a closer view of all the shimmer and glitz on this card:


I had so much fun coloring this image and glad that I’m down another card for the Holiday Season too! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you’ve enjoyed my share!  See you soon!
