Hello, Everyone! Today I am sharing this funny card featuring products from Penguin Palace.
Do You Like Humorous Cards?
I do! I think they’re the greatest way to put an instant smile on people’s faces. Sure, I love making floral cards, sentimental cards, etc. But there’s just something about “being cheeky” once in awhile, right? I have been wanting to highlight this adorable rhino ever since the “Beautiful Africa” set came out. I just love her little scarf. I searched the internet to see if I could find any rhino-related puns, and I somehow ran across this sentiment on some shirts and mugs. I just had to use it!
Making the Card
I started by making a background with the Waterspout Stencils 360°™, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite stencils. I used a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock and Distress Oxide inks with the stencil. I lined up my stencil in the 8″ Guide Ring™ and inked one side with pink and the other side with green. I then rotated it 60° and inked one side with orange and other side with blue. I rotated it 60° again to ink my final colors, yellow and purple. I did clean my stencil between each rotation, which was quick and easy.
Once I was finished with the stencil, I added some soft blending with the same colors, this time with regular Distress Inks. I have really been loving this effect lately with stencils, especially with rainbow colors.
To create my sentiment, I first decided how big my circular center feature needed to be in order to fit the rhino but not cover up too much of the background. I tested out a few circular dies and decided on a 2.5″ circle. Using Photoshop, I created an image file that was 2.5″ square and then created the sentiment to match the curves of a circle. I then printed it out on Neenah 80# card stock and cut it with the circular die.
Finally, on to the star of the show! I stamped the rhino with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah 80# card stock, colored her with Copic Markers and cut it out with the matching die. I popped her up onto the circle and then popped the circle up on the panel, which I adhered to a white A2 card base.
I’ll be honest – I just LOVE this card 🙂 I hope it gives you a chuckle. Thanks so much for joining me today. Be sure to check out all of the fun products in the Penguin Palace online shop.
