I used the cute Penguin Place stamp set and some of the fun Penguin Playmates Sale-a-braiton exclusive DSP from Stampin’ Up! to create a birthday card to share with you today. I did a video tutorial for this card on my Facebook page here and you can also see it on my YouTube channel here.
I started by cutting a panel of Penguin Playmates DSP (Sale-a-bration item) with one of the Picture This Dies. Then I cut two other panels of Penguin Playmates DSP with circle dies from the Layering Circles Dies, placing the circles around specific images before cutting the papers. I adhered the die cut circles to the back of the openings in the larger DSP panel with Stampin’ Seal.
***Quick Tip: Use the Silicone Craft Sheet to make applying the adhesive simple and mess free!
I stamped the sentiment from the Penguin Place photopolymer stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then cut it with one of the Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the die cut sentiment to the back of the larger DSP panel with Stampin’ Seal and then adhered the DSP panel to a panel of Basic White card stock with Stampin’ Seal.
I adhered the layered panel to the front of the Misty Moonlight card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Party Puffins stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then added the penguin images from the Penguin Place stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento, Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand and Just Jade inks near the sentiment. I added a strip of Penguin Playmates DSP to finish the inside of the card.
