Handmade Penguin Valentine Cards

Handmade Penguin Valentine Cards

This year my children have had plenty of down-time so I put them to work on their own valentines instead of me doing all the work.  I took them down to the studio and had the younger two looked through my Punch Pals book.  I knew before giving the book to them which one Ethan would choose.  He loves penguins, I knew he would choose the penguin.Stampin' Up! Punch PenguinHere he is!  I’m quite proud of Ethan for all the work he did on these.  He didn’t do it all, I helped, but he did a lot.  He glued on the belly and the wings (is that what you call them?) and feet of the penguin, he stamped the hearts and embossed the background. . . .  They’re so cute!

Ethan also enjoyed stamping the backs of the valentines (although he wasn’t all that into writing everyone’s names . . . I couldn’t blame him too much after all the work he did though.)

He used the “created by” stamp from the Creatively Yours stamp set, the heart from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and then the Casual Monogram personalized stamp I bought him for Christmas.
