I’m back with a happy, bright birthday card.
I love every image Stacey Yacula designs. This little penguin, from the Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes stamp set from My Favorite Things, is no exception. I stamped him in Extreme Black ink from My Favorite Things onto X-Press It blending card and colored him in with Copics.
I created a polaroid frame by diecutting the polaroid shaker frame die from My Favorite Things five times from white cardstock and stacked them together. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set on the top frame using Doll Pink ink from Simon Says Stamp. The color matches the pink cardstock I used pretty nicely.
I wanted a little bit of interest to my background and diecut a piece of Raspberry Fizz cardstock from Papertrey Ink with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop die from Lawn Fawn. The pink matches the color of the sentiment, and the polka dots match the polka dots on his hat, I love little details like this.
I glued my polaroid frame in the center of the card and added a few strategically placed vellum clouds. Because they hang off the edge of the frame, they break up the rigid rectangular look a little bit.
