Some friends of ours are leaving on a cruise today. They are going around South America. They are excited about the cruise and especially about seeing some penguins. I thought that some punch art penguins would add to a cute Bon Voyage card.
Aren’t those penguins cute!?
Design Notes for Penguin Bon Voyage Card:
I guess I have been into punch art recently. If you recall, I created a card for a little boy that had a character from Sesame Street. I called it Elmo but it was really Bert, or was it Ernie. (Check out whoever it was here.) So, I’ve decided that punch art really means looking at whatever you want to create and breaking it down to basic shapes. Turns out penguins are really ovals and circles. I used Layering Oval Framelits Dies for the body and 1 1/4″ Circle Punch for the head. The feet are made with the bow from the Cookie Cutter Punch. The eyes and mouth are also from that punch. And the little flippers… Leaf Punch! Who knew!
I wanted the card to be a little bigger than usual. It ended up being 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Bring out the Envelope Punch Board! I used some paper from the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper package.
