Hi Stampers. I have a quick and easy card for you today using the Penguin Builder Punch.
My card starts with a Soft Sea Foam card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next, I punched the out the penguins and then cut a strip of Basic White CS 5-1/2″ long and just a bit taller than the penguins. I used the Brick & Mortar Embossing folder to dry emboss the bricks.
The striped DSP is some I had leftover from the Penguin Playmates DSP from Sale-A-Bration. I added a 3/4″ strip above and below the Basic White layer. The penguins eyes and nose were stamped, they were glued together with liquid glue and the feet added with mini glue dots.
Stampin’ Tip: Because you only see the edges of the DSP, you can use small strips or punch or die cut things out of the center that is hidden. This will save on supplies.
I chose to make one of the penguins a girl. Using the Penguin Builder Punch, I punched her out of Polished Pink and added a bow with a rhinestone to her head. The bow that I used is from a retired punch, but a quick glance at our catalog shows me that there is a bow in the Hippo & Friends Dies that is very similar. If you don’t have those either, just take a peek though your collection, you may even find a small flower that will work.
Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White with a Penguin stamped in Memento Black ink in the lower right corner. The eyes we just dotted in with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and the nose stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink.
Stampin’ Tip: If you want the penguin to be a darker black, use the stamparatus and stamp it multiple times.
