So glad you like my card! I will give you instructions, yes of course.

I made the card with a stamp set from Stampin' Up! that is now retired. So you will need to find a small penguin stamp, a small circle stamp (dots), a sentiment stamp and a small heart stamp first. You will also need some cardstock and ink in navy, red and yellow tones that coordinate well together. A navy blue marker is also needed.

Then I took a rectangular card base made of Night of Navy cardstock (any navy cardstock should work) and added a square of So Saffron cardstock (find a yellow you like) to the left hand side. I stamped my penguin on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Night of Navy ink and punched him out with a square punch, then added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock behind the penguin. I added the penguin to the lower left of the card as shown, popping him up off the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then took my heart stamp and inked it up with Real Red ink, then stamped above the penguin in the pattern shown. I then doodled the border with a Night if Navy Stampin' Write marker.

Then I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock, added some yellow dots with So Saffron ink. I doodled the border with my marker. Then I trimmed and mounted the sentiment on some more Night of Navy cardstock then popped it up on the card base overlapping onto the square So Saffron mat.

I hope that helps!

Susan
