Welcome back. So glad to see you. Come on in, I have a card to show you.
Today's card is for the Crafts 4 Eternity challenge for this week. It is a Tic Tac Toe challenge, which means you have to pick three items to use on your card from the board. I chose the color blue, ribbon and snowflakes.
Isn't that a cute penguin? I just love penguins. I could sit at the zoo for hours and watch them play. I received this image already matted on the scalloped ovals in a swap, so I decided to use it for this card. I started with a piece of gray-blue card stock from Colorbok as my A2 card base. It is a top opening card instead of the usual side opening. I used some snowflake stickers from Provo Craft to give texture and design to the card base. That swirling blue ribbon, that's from Recollections and reminds me of snowflakes twirling and swirling through the air as they float down to earth. It's a felt ribbon so it gives added texture to the card. I used pop dots to add the penguin image. The little sentiment is from Inkadinkado and it's called Friendly Characters. The sentiment is actually attached to a little penguin standing on a block of ice, but I just stamped the sentiment part of the stamp by masking off the image. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out to look like a spoken word bubble. I inked it with Colorbox Cat's Eye ink in Light Blue.
That was it. I think it took me all of 15 minutes from start to finish to make this card. It has been one of the easier ones I have made lately. I do thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping in to see what I have been up to. I pray you have a wonderful evening. God bless y'all.
