Cards for Boys


Hello, Today over at The Paper Players Joanne has a fun theme challenge that is starting-Cards for Boys. I actually made three cards that would have worked for this challenge before I settled on this one! The rest didn’t jump out at me. I just think this little penguin in his swimming trunks is so gosh darn cute. I also hope you are not tiring of my heart backgrounds, as I just can’t help myself.

I am linking this card up at NBUS as my stencil is brand new to me and over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Any Occasion.

Card Details: MFT- Penguins in Paradise, The stencil is from Whimsy Stamps. I used Colored Pencil and Copics for my medium. I made my own heart stencil from an MFT die. I used a corner punch from SU to give my sentiment strips some interest. Enamel dots to finish it off.
