Birthday Invites

These little penguin cards are invitations for my daughter's birthday which is next Sunday (yep on Fathers Day). Gabby was born on Fathers Day and her birthday usually falls on Fathers Day most years. I found this cute Imaginisce penguin stamp at Archivers along with the flip flop stamp, but was bumbed out because I couldn't find the hula girl penguin to go with him. The cutest cards that I've seen made with these stamps is Heather Nichols, you have to go and take a look for yourself and I know you'll agree!


These invites were fairly easy to make, I colored each penguin with my copic markers after I stamped them out with Brilliance ink, then added Stickles glitter to his paints and Popsicle. The background panel is embossed using my Cuttlebug with the Divine Swirls folder, the strip of designer paper is by Sandylion Ribbon Stripe (fun paper). I also used the SU stamp sets Hugs & Wishes and All About U for the inside info.

Colors: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange and Whisper White.
