I should mention that I rarely leave things out after I project. I usually put things away so I can start with a clean space on my table. So obviously this card was meant to be!
Here's the sketch:
And here's what I did with it!
The penguin was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock and onto a sheet of patterned paper from the old and retired Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad. The penguin on the Neenah cardstock was colored with Copic markers. The panel took a ride through my Big Kick and stayed in the die while I lightly traced the interior of the it. I popped out the panel and added a background scene using Copic markers.
The penguin's hat and scarf, stamped onto the patterned paper, were fussy cut, lightly shaded, and adhered to their counterparts on the stamp scene. Clear Gelly Glaze pen was used on the penguin's beak and white flock was added to the hat's brim? and pom-pom. The final touch was to add some glitter with Hologram Glitter Liner by Viva Décor.
This time I decided to make the card a bit smaller than the last one, so I had to do all that pesky math again. I added the sentiment to the fishtail die cuts using Doodlebug Rub-ons. I wish I could still find those as they're the perfect size for sentiments on cards! The layered papers were edged with Black Soot Distress ink. I repeated the coat the Making Memories button with patterned paper thing again, but edged it with Black Soot Distress ink. I had some sparkly red floss which I used to thread the button.
