Happy Holidays Penguin

In between watching football (Go Giants!) and picking my oldest up from work I had some time to stamp this afternoon so I set out to make a card for the Lawnscaping challenge, using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

The challenge at Lawnscaping is to make a project with critters so I pulled out Winter Penguin. I love penguins and had to have this little guy when I saw him! I kept the card simple by just doing some faux stitching around the card base and letting the cute little penguin and sentiment take center stage. The sketch from Freshly Made is perfect for a CAS card. The penguin is popped up with dimensionals, as is the white panel he is adhered to.

Thanks for stopping by!

 Here is another card I made with this little guy. I prefer the one above, but my husband and daughter liked this one with the snowflakes:

Stamps: Winter Penguin (Lawn Fawn)
Paper: Kraft (SU retired), Whisper White (SU), Snow Day Paper Pack (Lawn Fawn)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Old Olive (all SU)
Accessories: White Gel Pen, Basic Pearls (all SU)


  1. I was oddly productive while watching football yesterday too! (Go Pats)! There's something about a penguin that always makes me smile so you can be sure I love this little guy! The pearls look like fun snowflakes too! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Oh this is so sweet! I LOVE this little guy and I adore the colours you've used. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  3. Cute holiday card! that image is so sweet!
