Card Project, Cards and Craft, Challenge Entry

Birthday Penguin

Hello, everyone. As I mentioned in my previous post I made 2 cards using the same challenges but with this card, I decided that I would include the twist version from the Double Trouble Challenge. And just to remind us of the challenge they are …

So it is to use 3 different patterned papers but this time include a Penguin

So once I found out about the twist I went searching in my images to see if I had something that I could work with. And I found this cute but unfortunately no longer available digi image from Meljen Designs. I fussy cut around the ribbon part of the image before using a circle die to cut both the image and the black mat as well with my Gemini Jnr machine. Then I matted all the other papers with black paper before adhering them to my card base. I found this gold washi tape in my stash as I wanted to break up the very purple card that I had created. By adding this to some cardstock before adhering it to the card it helped to make sure it didn’t have any marks from the papers beneath.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my 2nd make using the challenges from Try Stampin On Tuesday and Double Trouble. Before you go I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

  1. Oh my, the penguin image is adorable and the patterned papers you have used is a fantastic mix. I thought I was going to see the second half of your masculine sceney but nice to see you used Twisted Sister’s optional twist. Again, thank you for joining us at Double Trouble and TSOT.

  2. Tracy, what a fun birthday card! I’m a purple fan, so all your colorful pattern papers really caught my eye! Great interpretation of Try Stampin’ on Tuesday’s sketch, and inclusion of a penguin and pattern papers for Double Trouble’s challenge! Thank you for sharing with both of us!!! -Donna
