Throwback Thursday: Winter Penguin

Good morning, friends, and welcome back to this week's Papertrey Ink Throwback Thursday feature! This week Betsy, Michelle, and I are sharing projects with Winter Penguin. This little penguin brings such a smile to my face! He’s adorable and perfect for creating a wintery card for my nephew’s upcoming birthday.

I began by randomly stamping an Aqua Mist card base with Aqua Mist and Fresh Snow snowflakes. Then, I sponged a white panel with Aqua Mist ink and die cut it with a stitched panel from the Noted: Scalloped A2 Die Collection. Then, I die cut the center with the Mix & Mat: Confetti insert. I backed that panel with white adhesive paper and sprinkled crystal glitter through the holes to create a snowy effect.

I matted that panel with Bitty Big: Pure Poppy patterned paper and added woodgrain textured snow drifts for dimension and texture. I tied a piece of 1/8" grosgrain ribbon around the snowbank before adhering that panel to the card base with foam adhesive.

Next, I stamped and die cut my penguin. I used Copic markers to color his beak and feet as well as give his belly a bit of shading. I die cut his hat and embellished the end with a real pom pom. I adhered both to the card front with foam tape. Finally, I die cut the speech bubble from the Bubble Talk die set and stamped it with the small snowflake from Winter Penguin as well as one of the sentiments in the set. What a cutie pie!

That mini set sure packs a big punch, don't you think? Make sure to pop in on Betsy and Michelle for more with this super cute set. I'll see you again soon! I have more February release projects to share, after all!

I second Luanne's comment. The Confetti background is perfect for this card.

The cuteness factor here is Level 10 -- the tops!
