Quick penguin card CASE
I CASED this card from the Stampin' Up demonstrators group where there are several versions of this card being made. I added my own touch by using the Heart Treat Cups (120435/$2.95) and including a Dove chocolate for the recipient.
I started out with black cardstock cut 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and folded longways with the fold at the top. I rounded all for corners with a corner rounder. The white layer was run through the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (113439) with the Top Note Die (113463). The eyes were punched with a 1/2" circle punch and highlighted with white gel pen. I did not have an oval punch for the beak, so I hand cut a strip of orange into a rectangle then used the corner rounder to emulate an oval. The other cards also used a larger oval punch for the flippers (?) which I did not have either so I used my Heart punch (119883) and punched a heart in black. Then I cut the heart in half and made the halves into my flipper/arms.
