I had fun with a penguin and Valentine theme today.
This penguin is from Gerda Steiner Designs Valentine Penguin along with the greeting. The letters are stamped from The Stamps of Life lovebugs2stamp. I embossed the bottom of the card with a folder from Stampin’Up, retired. I added the red hearts across the card with a border die from Sizzix, also retired. The small hearts were punched with the Owl Builder Punch from SU.
I used the above sketch in creating this card. I group the hearts and letters as one unit and the penguin a unit, so that makes the three units down the left side. It has been quite a while since I used one of the sketches and this was a joy to work with.
There are red heart on the Double D Challenge mood board, so I am adding it to that challenge. The Shopping Our Stash challenge is to use hearts or vegetables. I chose to use hearts. Another challenge was brought to my attention, Colorful Options. February’s challenge is to use the color red.

I always love it when you start digging in your stash. Such delightful things you come up with!
Thank you! I enjoyed this.
OMG…so adorable. Fits the sketch challenge as well as the other challenges perfectly. The penguin is adorable and I really like your partial embossing to give him a platform. Sweet card.
Thank you! This folder is actually the size I embossed it. I think it was meant for envelopes and there are dies as well. I forgot all about it till I was looking for a folder with hearts.
This is so cute!
