Penguin Merry Christmas

  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas........on my blog and in my craft space anyway! Where I live we are in the throws of summer heat and humidity so doing Christmas cards in July definitely helps cool things down in my space.

I have a number of people in my life who love penguins so the re-release of "Penguin On Ice" in the Christmas in July release was perfect timing for my Christmas card making adventures. I definitely see more of this cutie in my card making future. Without further Penguin On Ice from High Hopes Rubber Stamps!

I stamped this cutie and coloured him with Copic markers and added some Stickles to his hat. I have recently switched to Copics so I am having fun learning colour combos and just having fun colouring over all. 
After I finished the colouring, I cut out the image using a slash stitched round square die. I chose patterned paper from Echo Park and planned and cut each layer. I added some die cut icicles to the layers to keep the theme of the stamp as he is sitting on an ice pad. 
A tiny bow and the sentiment finish off my card.
