Clean & Simple Stamping blog and loved it so I thought I'd play along! Normally I would have left the card all white and just added the strip of cardstock and the circle as in the sketch, but I decided to add a bit more color and use some patterned paper for the base of the card.
Penguin Pals stamp set from Taylored Expressions along with the Snow Day Project Pantry kit. I colored the penguin using Copic markers and added some Stardust Stickles to his Santa hat. I also used the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die for the edge of the cardstock strip. As a finished touch, I faux stitched around the edge of card with a brown marker.
