A background of Wrapped Stitch Hearts creates a twirly setting for the Happy Penguin on a simple card today. Add a brightly bold greeting from the Smile Clear Stamp Set - and a swirly circle print background - and it's a quick card for your favorite guy. Hello, Jean Okimoto here, the big day is just two weeks away - quick and easy is the way to go!
Layer a set of red Wrapped Stitch Hearts onto a 2-¼" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics block of silver and black printed paper.
Cut Happy Penguin from watercolor paper and again from black cardstock. Color two eye dots on a scrap of orange cardstock with a black marker and attach it behind the white penguin. Attach the additional black penguin behind the white, slightly lower for dimension.
Attach black duct tape to a scrap of cardstock and diecut a glossy contrasting overlay for the head and flippers.
Attach everything to a white A6 (4-⅝" x 6-¼") card. Cut a bunch of red glittered hearts with the Dibble Heart Border die. Attach one of the little hearts to the penguin. Add black sequins.
Need a more gal-ish design? Just diecut some fuchsia, pink or peach Wrapped Stitch Hearts and add a garden print instead. Finish it off with pastel or glittery gem stickers.
