Jolly Holiday

Still making Christmas cards? Chocolate, Coffee, & Cards is hosting a "Happy Holidays" challenge. I hadn't yet inked up these penguins for Christmas this year, so got busy - and added some tissue paper to make it look like they really are rooting around in a gift.


Supplies: papers from Imaginisce; stamps from The Cat's Pajamas; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Bic Markers; rhinestone strips from Dollarama; tissue paper; classic small oval Nesties



I carefully cut along the box design on the stamped image to give the tissue a place to peek through - and used tape on the back to hold it in place once I was happy with how it looked. I would have taken a picture but my hands were too busy patting myself on the back for being a genius *facepalm*

xoxo,
Jessi

They really do look like they're rooting in a box and throwing tissue paper every which way! So cute, fun, and pretty. Love all the bling too.
