Great Impressions: Wintry Penguin

Hey, everyone!  Happy Thursday!  It's time for me to share another creation using stamps from the Great Impressions store again.  Today I've got a fun and easily mail-able card with a holiday theme.  Take a gander...

I decided to keep this card CAS and flat so it would be ideal for mailing.  So, all of the stamps are on the same panel!  I've used some newer images paired with an older sentiment.  I started by stamping the snowbanks, G511 Snow Drifts, in a very light blue ink.  I added some glitter to it for some shine.

I then stamped the little penguin, F592 Dancing Penguin, and colored in what needed to be colored with glitter gel pens.  I added some glitter to the little snowflakes above his head, too.  More shine!

Lastly, I stamped an older sentiment, E250 Warmth & Love, in red and highlighted it with red gel pen.

I think the final product turned out better than I though it would!  A mail-able, holiday card, that has lots of shine and holiday spirit thrown into it.  Thoughts?

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  Hop over to the Great Impressions blog for more inspiration and come play along with our monthly challenge, too!  If you use stamps from Great Impressions, you'll be able to link up your creation in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
