Your Kindness Warms My Heart
This card is 4 1/4"x5 1/2." I used some snowflake patterned cardstock from the Winter Magic Stack by DCWV for the card base. I cut two ovals from George and Basic Shapes. The white one is cut at 4" and the light blue snowflake one is cut at 3 1/2." The light blue snowflake cardstock is from the Peppermint Forest Stack by DCWV. I layered the ovals together and adhered them to the card base. I then wrapped the card with some ribbon that I got at JoAnns. My cute little penguin is a stamp that I colored with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I used white flocking on the trim of her sweater and hat, although it doesn't show up real well in the photo. I covered the white part of her with glossy accents and covered the black part with a shimmery gel pen. I cut her out and used pop-dots to adhere her to the card. My sentiment is a Fiskars stamp that I stamped with starlight black ink, by Tsukineko. For the inside of the card I cut some shimmery blue paper 1/8" smaller than the card base, then cut some white cardstock 1/4" smaller than the blue. I stamped my sentiment in the same ink as I used for the front sentiment.
