Okay, now that we have that sorted out, here's my card! I've created a video to show you how I did it. I'm still really new with making voiceovers and I get a bit nervous and might say the wrong words but I hope you will still enjoy it. Click on the play button below. If you'd like to, you can subscribe to my youtube channel as I will be making more of these in the future.
In this card, I used the Penguin Party & Für Alle Fälle stamp set. (You will see all the stamps sets just below my card.) I'm so excited that Christine released a German sentiment set because my future husband is German and also almost 3/4 of my friends are Germans so it's really awesome to have stamp set like this around.
Anyways, I took the little penguin in the set and decided stretch the usage of that image. I made it look like the penguin is holding multiple parachutes while flying down. I just wanted to make a cheerful card to match the sentiment (which means Congrats).
I took the tiny arrow in the Für Alle Fälle stamp set to create my own patterned paper. I used the Hero Arts Tide Pool ink to create this tone on tone look. It's very light but it's there and I think it gives a nice touch to the card.
These are the stamp sets I used for my card :
Now, go hop along!
