Hi, crafty friends. We’ve reached the end of 2023, can you believe it? I thought I’d round out the year with a thank you card, featuring one of my favorite images – Penguin Hug from Rachelle Anne Miller. This is actually my card number 137 for 2023.
I’ve used this image a few times in the past, but I’ve never colored the penguins blue, which kind of blew my mind when I realized. I decided to remedy that and created soft blue penguins and a corally pink scarf. I cut my panel down to a square, die cut a heart in the center using a die from Papirdesign and mounted the negative onto a square card base I created from Berry Sorbet cardstock from Papertrey Ink.
Onto my colored heart, I stamped a sentiment from the Mini Messages stamp set from Mama Elephant using Berry Sorbet ink from Papertrey Ink. I adhered the heart to the card front and added a few sequins from the Starry Night mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards to finish my card.
Thanks so much for coming with me on this creative journey, and I wish you a happy, healthy and creative 2024.
Oh, and before I forget, I used a super simple color palette for this one.
