You're Sweet Card

Hi Guys,

I just love this cute penguin stamp and I love when I get to use it for a card. I created this card for the Make the Day Special Try a Technique challenge. I used an emboss resist technique on the lower portion of my card which I haven't tried before. It was fun and I like the effect. Let me know what you think - your comments are always very much appreciated xx

I started off with a peice of 110lb Neenah Solar white cardstock which I trimmed to A2 size. Next I die cut a peice of watercolour cardstock into a scalloped rectangle using one of the Femme Frames dies from Mama Elephant. I used the chevron stamp from the Lawn Fawn Interlocking Backdrops and Papermania clear embossing powder to heat emboss a design onto the lower part of my card. Next I used Worn Lipstick and Mustard Seed distress inks to created a soft blended background.

I used washi tape and some patterend paper die cut with a scalloped border from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped borders die set to divide the upper and lower parts of my design. i aslo overlayed a peice of pink bakers twine.

Next I stamped one of the penguins from the Mame Elephant Love Quotes stamp set onto Neenah cardstock, using Hero Arts Charcoal Ink. I also stamped a lollipop image from the Lawn Fawn Cozy Christmas Stamp set in the same way. I coloured the images with Spectrum Noir markers, fussy cut them and adehered them to my card with foam squares. I aldo die cut cloud shapes from vellum using the couds dies from Paper Smooches to create a dreamy look.

I completed my card by adding ribbon from my stash, Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and enamel dots from freckled Fawn.
