I’ve been hoping for time to play with the Owl Builder Punch again. I wanted an excuse to try making penguins. How cute is this?
I was trying to decide what to do with that little penguin that I built when I remembered that the new sketch for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge was up! Not only did they make it a sketch challenge, they made it a color challenge. I’m not sure that I would have chosen to put that Summer Starfruit in this card if it had not been for the color challenge, but I like it!
Here is the sketch I had to work from:
My card is created on a Whisper White card base cut 5-1/2 x 8- 1/2″, and scored at 4-1/4″. I used the Marina Mist card stock for the bottom and the same color from the Designer Series Polka Dot Parade #126902). I did use a piece of polka dot Designer Series Paper in the Summer Starfruit In Color series (#126910). Notice that I only left a 1/8″ border under that square of Whisper White! I used the Merry sentiment from the Pennant Parade stamp set (#122742) along with the little snowflake stamp, which is stamped very lightly behind the penguin. You also see Real Red ribbon, Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine, a brad and 3 basic pearls to finish it off.
The Owl Builder Punch (#118074) really does make some adorable creatures! It’s a little time consuming, but you get a really whimsical card!
