Caroling Penguins #pbcreativechristmas

This afternoon I decided to make up a quick Christmas card and I used a really cute and delightful stamp for my card using the Penny Black Caroling Penguins set. There is also some sentiments with it so I chose one to add to my card.


I recently purchased some wonderful ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon called Vintage Christmas so I tried to use the same colors in my penguin design. I think I got the Copics to match quite well too. After coloring the penguins and adding the ribbon I simply added it to a Gina K. Designs Cranberry Tart card stock base. I also added a piece of the white card stock inside so I can stamp or write a message.

I used my MISTI to get a good stamping and I am glad I always rely on that tool. It is a lifesaver with me not being able to stamp well anymore due to my arthritis.

I am entering this into the Penny Black Creative Christmas Challenge.

Anyway, I wanted to share it and I especially want to thank my friend Patti for giving me the stamp set too. I love it!

I hope your Sunday is going great and that your new week will be a great one.

God bless,
Verna

What a cute, cute stamp! It's so nice when you can color a fair-sized image like this and then make a simple card with it. Doesn't need anything more than the pretty Christmas ribbon. It's adorable, Verna!
