Happy Surfday! :)

Hi there!

I would like to share with you a card(s) I made fort Create a Smile Design Team Call that is happening now. I used the digi stamp they offer in their freebie section – it is of a cute surfing penguin – I thought he was so super adorable that I needed to make a card with him 🙂

My idea was to create a scene card with waves and a sunset. Since I do not have any dies for the waves I created my own with my scrap colour card stock. I did make 3 cards because I had 3 attempts – I always want to make something perfectly and well it often means that I try a few times before I am satisfied. After I made my third card I decided thatI like all three of them though haha go figure 😉

Here is the first attempt. I loved colouring these penguins by the way and the surfing boards! Well as you can see the waves are pretty tall and also it looks like the deepest water is in front – so that I decided to change (also one penguin has black feet :-/ haha


That is the second card: I just love the sunset I used mustard seed, spiced marmalade and worn lipstick distress inks to achieve that and masked off the sun after applying mustard seed first. I like this one better but still not perfect apparently haha

5 6  he is so darn cute!!! 🙂

So here is the third and last card I made. I decided to add the sentiment along the top of the card. I added some interest to the boards as well and as you saw on all of the cards, since these are birthday cards, the penguins jus thad to hold the balloons :)) To be honest there is not much difference between card no 2 and no 3 but hey I had to do it :))
