This slimline card measures 8-1/2″ wide X 3-1/2″ tall. I created the trio window front using a die set by Trinity stamps called, Modern Embossed Panels. I created the look of very aged and weathered planks by drawing horizontal lines with a ruler and marker and then adding graining using cool and warm grays and blue Copic Markers. I also added some lines using a fine-tip black marker. I added faux nailhead on the edges. The background in the windows is a blended background using Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon Distressed Oxide Inks.
All the penguins were stamped, colored and cut out. I used cool grays for the penguins and B45, B41 and B00 for the ice, etc. Each penguin was placed in a little scene that tells a story. First they fish, then they gather and string the fish. The story just follows this long card.
Inside, the card reads, “fishing you a happy birthday.” This stamp is from a Simon Says Stamp set called, One Cool Pineapple.
