Hello Crafty Friends! Today, I am sharing a Paris inspired card with the adorable Passionate Penguins from Sunny Studio Stamps. The last time I visited Paris was at least 15 years ago and I am so looking forward to being able to visit again. In the meantime, I am keeping my Paris memories alive with Sunny Studio’s new release.
For the background, I stamped white cardstock sized 4.25″ x 5.5″ with buildings from the Charming City set using a light coloured ink listed below. For the polaroid frames, I used my paper trimmer and cut three rectangles sized 3.0″ x 4.6″ in red, white, and blue cardstock. I used the rectangle die from Wrap Around Box set to die cut the photo inset area.
I had a lot of fun making the Eiffel Tower photograph. I masked off 1.5″ from the bottom of a piece of white cardstock sized 2.9″ x 4.1″. I ink blended Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks onto the unmasked top portion leaving the area close to the grass light in color. I then removed the masking tape from the masked area and ink blended the grass area with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks. I marked the area for the trees by adhering a die cut of the Eiffel Tower onto the center of the photograph using removable adhesive. I drew oval shapes lightly with a pencil on both sides of the Eiffel Tower and made tiny dots by stippling with Copic Markers listed below. I erased the pencil lines before I stippled with YG13 and YG11. I went over the white areas in the trees with YG11 at the end.
I glued the Eiffel Tower onto the photo and used foam tape to attached the penguin and beret. I used foam tape and attached the white frame onto the photograph and added a backing for support by glueing the entire photo onto white cardstock of the same size. I then adhered the remaining penguins, balloon bouquet, bow, and macarons with foam tape and finished off the card by stamping the sentiment and adding clear enamel dots and voilà!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you like my card!!
