Sweet Party Penguin for Cara
this one by Amanda & this one by Teneale. The card had to have some bling for Cara, so I used some silver glimmer paper (have you tried this yet?) to make a sparkly party hat & glittery stage for him.
How perfect is the "You're an 11" sentiment? It's from the well named Perfect Words hostess set? I wasn't sure how to incorporate it on the card at first, but then I thought Percy the Penguin could hold it, so that's what I did. PS: the number 11 punched out perfectly with one of the owl eyes!!
If you haven't made a centre step card, check out this tutorial at SplitcoastStampers I used to work out the principles involved, then made my own size version. My version fits a regular Aus C6 envelope.
Anyway, I think that's all I need to say for now. Hope you like my penguin card. Thanks very much for visiting for your patience during my blogging absence.If you have any questions or just want to say hello, please leave me a comment. I love to hear from you. Hope to be back soon.
Inky wishes, Di
