Penguin Love

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
Come join our monthly challenge...and you could be the next winner of two High Hopes Stamps of your choice.  The details for the December Challenge - Christmas/Winter theme can be found here

Only 1 week left until Christmas!  To help you get in the Holiday spirit, here is another festive card that I made.
This is Penguin Love (SS003).  These two little penguins are just plain cute!   

I started by colouring the image with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I added some Glossy Accents to the penguin's beak, feet and holly berries.  Frosted Lace Stickles were used on the fur and pompoms of the hats.  I just love all the sparkle and glitter on Christmas cards!

The image was die cut using a Stitched Rectangle die.  Some SU Green Galore Ink was sponged on the edges of the image and a rectangular piece of the matching cardstock was placed under the image for layering.  Glitter vellum paper (called Holly Flourish) was cut then folded over top of a piece of white cardstock.  This allowed the tape to be hidden on the back side of the glitter vellum paper, in order to secure it to the white cardstock.  This piece was centred on the red cardstock base of the card.  To add some more glitter, I used a couple of strips of Starfoam Sticker Lines.  These stickers are sooo fun, quick, and easy to use.  On this card, the strips made for a nice edge on the glitter vellum cardstock to give it more of a sharp and clean appearance.  To add a bit more sparkle, 3 YNS-Holly Jolly Sparkly Gumdrops were also included around the main image.    
For the Season's Greetings sentiment, I used another package of Starfoam Stickers - called text.  This is a quick option and there is a large selection of these stickers available with different sentiments; however, any High Hopes sentiment would work well with some silver embossing powder too.
