To make my card, I started off using a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. For my background paper, I used a snowflake patterned paper from Hot Off The Press, cut to 5.25" x 4", and adhered that to the front of my card base. For my image, I used the penguin stamp from the Gina K Stamps stamp set, Wishing You Joy. I just love this little guy. I stamped him on white card stock, using black ink, colored his scarf with a blue Copic marker, and his beak and feet in orange, then cut him out.
To frame my penguin, I also stamped the frame from the same stamp set in blue on white card stock, then cut the middle out using a round Spellbinders die that fit the middle of the the frame. I attached the frame to the front of my card base with dimensional tape, then I attached the penguin with dimensional tape as well, placing it in the middle of the frame.
For my " Thank You " sentiment, I used a stamp from my stash of stamps, and using blue ink, I stamped it on white card stock, cut it to size, then inked around the edges. I placed it to the right side of my images with dimensional tape.
I thought my card needed a little sparkle, so I added little dabs of Crystal Stickles randomly on top of the stamped frame. If you look very close, you will see it.
