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.

    1. 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.
