Merry Christmas Mum

Here is the card I have made for my mum this year. I have used the very cute PTI Winter Penguin stamp and stamped him out in black ink then die cut with the co-ordinating die. His feet and beak have been coloured with Copics and then he has been added to a circle cut with Nestabilities dies. The white circle has been stamped with mini snowflakes from the same set in Memento Lulu Lavender ink. This circle has been added to the base with 3D foam pads. The base is a sheet of DB Fairy Dust run through my Cuttlebug using the PTI Peace Be Still Impression Plate and then mounted to DB Lilac CS, wrapped with PTI Fresh Snow ribbon and then DB Twine; Stamped witht he PTI Signature Christmas stamp using a Memento Tuxedo Black pen {so that I could exclude the 'we wish you a' part}. The whole thing has then been added to a white card blank. I have punched a little snowflake from DB Sugar Coated CS and added to the twine with a bow and a little DB Jewel. More DB Mini Jewels added to finish.

STAMPS: Papertrey Ink. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black & Lulu Lavender. COPICS: YR15, YR16, B91, Blender. CS: Craftwork Cards, Papertrey Ink, Doodlebug Designs. TOOLS: Nestabilities, Papertrey Ink Die, Papertrey Ink Impression Plate. EMBELLISHMENTS: Doodlebug Designs Mini Jewels, Doodlebug Designs Doodle Twine, Papertrey Ink Satin Luxe Ribbon.
