Christmas Penguins for Merry Little Christmas Challenge #56 for May/June 2024


It has been quite a hectic few months, so for challenge #56 for May/June 2024 of the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog I chose to make a card using some of the lovely background paper I have been collecting!!

So I created a card using some penguins that were already stamped and die cut and a new background paper from La-La Land Crafts:

As I mentioned, I already stamped and die cut the penguins are from Chill Winter Season which is a stamp & die set from Simon Says Stamps Stamptember in collaboration with La-La Land Crafts.
I coloured them with the following Copics:
  • black - C3, C5, C7, C9
  • white - C00, C0, C1
  • beak/feet - YR12, YR14, YR18, R20
  • red - R22, R24, R27, R39
  • green - YG21, YG03, YG17
  • blue - B14, B16, B18
I then chose a paper from the Winter Time Paper Pack by La-La Land Crafts and adhered it to a white square card from Envelope Solutions
I then stamped the sentiment from Winter Hippos Clear Stamp Set also by La-La Land Crafts in Bahama Blue Memento ink using my MISTI.
Here is a photo of the penguins close up:

I also decided to add a pocket on the inside for a gift card - I die cut the Left Pocket Die by La-La Land Crafts in matte gold cardstock and then adhered it to the inside of the card:
