Hello friends! We are now past Christmas and getting ready for a New Year, but soon the feeling of love will be in the air! So I thought I’d start that off with something that I personally love, which you might know, are those cute penguins! 🙂
And of course you’ve already seen me use this super fun Wintertime Penguins Pairables set from Digi Doodle Studios in a couple of different ways, but this time I’ve added the hearts above his head and sentiment from the same set to make this a “lovey dovey” style card! (If you haven’t YET seen the other creations that I’ve made with this adorable set, then check out my blog posts HERE and HERE!)
I kept the colors in pink and red to go with Valentine’s Day, but you could easily make this a wonderful anniversary or “any day” card for your favorite love penguin as well! LOL!
So I grabbed some fun papers from my stash with both pink snowflakes and red/pinkish hearts paper for my 5″ top folding white base card that I layered the turquoise colored cardstock over and then applied the papers to. I embossed some hearts on the middle strip with a piece of white cardstock and then rubbed some turquoise colored ink lightly over them. I layered that strip onto a pice of turquoise cardstock again and then wrapped some white/clear metallic ribbon with a bow over it before attaching it down.
The sentiment was printed out from this cute set with the penguin and then I just used a banner die to cut it out with and attach to the front of the card.
I added the penguin image that was die cut and layered with some stitched and scallop circle dies. I’ve used some craft foam to pop it up over the center, then added a heart button with twine in the center of the bow. Lastly, I’ve added a couple of snowflake sequins and some liquid pearl “dots” randomly over the card.
Here’s a closer look at this cutie and how I’ve got him colored up with my Copic markers. I’ve used a white gel pen to dot his cheeks and then I took a glitter brush pen (Spectrum Noir) and covered the hearts above his head as well as the “snowy” ground under his feet for a bit of shimmer.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my “lovey dovey” card today and have been inspired in some way! Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today!
I can’t believe that the New Year is just about to start!! I will most definately be seeing you in 2020 my friends!! 🙂
