My brother in law really likes penguins, so I hunted all over the craftsites to find a penguin. Many of the SU demos have several different choices, but this one posted on Splitcoast. Isn't it just too cute?
The base is a standard A2 in Whisper White. The Marina Mist is dry embossed using a Sizzix stars embossing folder with the Cuttlebug. I took a scrap of Whisper White and tore the edges, inked it with Versamark, then heat embossed with clear glitter powder. The penguin is made with Basic Black, Whisper White, and Pumpkin Pie. I did not have all the punches, so I cheated and used my Cricut with George & Basic Shapes to cut the feet, beak, and the narrow oval for the face. The beak is cut at 1/2, the white oval for the face is cut at 1 1/4", and the feet are cut at 1/2". I used a scrap of red satin to make the bow, attaching it with a mini Zots glue dot. The sentiment is from SU's Word Play, stamped with Tim Holtz Broken China distress ink, then punched with the SU scalloped circle punch. I used Versamark to stamp the shooting star from SU's retired So Happy For You and heat embossed with clear powder over the the sentiment. I also added a little bling over the "i" in wish.
Inside, I used the stars from SU's retired Starring You and the Broken China distress ink, to stamp along the left edge. Last, I stamped the sentiment from So Happy For You. Sorry for the darkness of the photos, my new craft area has florescent lighting...YUCK! Thanks for looking! April
