Cutting Penguins!? | Blog Hop For Everyone

August 20, 2016

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog hop for everyone (there isn’t everyone) but there is ALOT of talent in one blog hop. It also features a technique called “cutting penguins!?” the technique explains itself!

Lets get started by stamping some happy penguins down and chopping them in half with the card panel. I know it seems harmful, but as far as I know they don’t feel much pain. This is so that we can use colored pencils and Copic markers on one colored image (I know, pretty smart eh).

Color those images as you usually would with whatever fancy techniques you wish!

Then it’s time to put the fun and interactive twist on the card! So, add the top panel on the top fold of the card base. Then chop off the excess and add the lower piece onto the panel. Finally, stamp your sentiment on the inside. Then, your recipient will see that they make your day cooler when they open up the card!

Enjoy the video!
