Merci Penguins

This week Penny Black is featuring thank you cards and today I am hosting their blog with this pair of thankful penguins.   

The card bases were constructed using Spellbinder’s Labels Eighteen.  The card on the left was processed through the die-cutting machine with an embossing mat and the card on the right has an additional frame added.  The white cardstock die-cut frame was transformed with Bahama Blue Memento ink and stamped with the background from Warm Wishes. 

The sentiment is from the transparent set Salutations and the cute penguin is a part of Christmas with Mimi.  A black glaze pen is great for creating brad-like accents. 

Tip/Hint:  Cutting a small portion from the back card base will give the card three points of contact when displayed and prevent the piece from “rocking”.

Merci beaucoup for visiting today!
