Welcome and Happy World Cardmaking Day! I hope you’ve been enjoying the bloghop so far, if you are participating. There are lots of cards to see! I’ve made a snowy, penguin Christmas card for your viewing pleasure today. The stamped image is colored with Copic markers in some pretty untraditional Christmas colors. Kind of fun and I felt compelled to use some of my penguin stamps! If you’d like to see more snow cards, visit my previous posts from this week (scroll down). I’ve kind of been on a roll!
- Stamps – Art Impressions “Sledding Penguins” and The Cat’s Pajamas “Penguin Christmas” (sentiment)
- Patterned paper – My Mind’s Eye “Colorful Christmas Snowflake Stripes” (both sides of single sheet)
- Snowflake embellishments – Dress It Up “Itty Bitty Snowflakes”
- Ribbon – American Crafts
I used a Card Positioning Systems sketch from the book, Cardmaker’s Sketchbook: Ideas to Inspire Creative Card Design. Thanks for stopping by, and please hop on to the numerous other blogs by clicking on the Blog Hop graphic at the top of this post.
