Hi Everyone, my card today is for
I decided to do something a little different today and do some cutting, my thinking for Christmas in July? well July is Summer (except in the Southern Hemisphere) and a little drink wouldn't go amiss on the beach would it? I thought the penguin would be happy in most environments, some live near beaches!
Anyhow off to my digital cutting machine and cut out the images to colour. I did 2 of each, in case I made a mess of the colouring, but wanted the card layered to make it a little thicker. Yes! I could have used coloured card, which I thought would be my go to, in case I failed with the colouring.
these are the layers ready to be coloured
I forgot to photograph the colouring process 😕
I coloured all pieces, the pattern says glitter card for the white body, scarf and wine in the glass, but I decided to heat emboss with sparkly embossing powder. All the pieces were were then glued with wet glue, so there was wiggle room. Googly eyes were added and 2 ribbon bows tied together with gold elastic which also held the "glass" tag.
