Shine Bright Penguin Mom & Baby Card by Karla

Hello friends! Karla back today with a sweet card that I hope will make you smile using the adorable Penguin with Chick digital stamp available in the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop! I decided to colour these cuties up with Copic Markers after printing on 65 lb white cardstock. I think this sweet little pair would be super adorable for Mothers Day, but I actually gave this to a friend for her birthday!

I made a neat diagonal fold card by cutting a piece of 8 1/2 x 11" cardstock from corner to corner. This gives you 2 triangular pieces, which you can then create 2 cards with. I scored the card so I had an inside base that was 4 1/4 x 5 1/2", leaving two triangular flaps to fold together (you can see this more in the photo at the bottom) I used some pretty Paige Evans Bloom paper to mat two triangles and then added my coloured penguin image, which was diecut and layered using some Sizzix dotted ovals. I attached the top and side of the oval to the top flap of the card and then popped up a sun that I fussy cut from patterned paper. Finally, a few pretty sequins add a little bling!

Inside, I used a tag die to cut out a sentiment that I typed on the computer and printed out on white cardstock. You can see how the flaps lift to the top and side for a fun fold!
