Have a Cool Yule

My son's friend broke his leg playing hockey recently, and today will be his first day back to school. Lance wanted to give him a card, but something different than the usual Get Well type. He chose this cutie penguin from the Cool Yule set from My Favorite Things. I made a Tent Topper Card, and used some Frost paper (Memory Box) for the background. The ice block was stamped onto clear card stock with StazOn ink, then trimmed out. The snow is created with Liquid Appliqué and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.

Stamps: Cool Yule (My Favorite Things)
Card Stock: Bordering Blue, White, Frost (Memory Box), Clear Card Stock
Ink:
Tuxedo Black (Memento) , Jet Black (StazOn), Copic Markers, Clear Spica Glitter Pen
Accessories: Oval & Scalloped Oval Nestabilities, Ribbon (PTI), Liquid Appliqué, Dazzling Diamonds, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Weekend!!

What a very sweet looking image of the penguin on the ice and the little hint of glaze that you created at the bottom! How neat of your son to want to give this to his friend, I think it's perfect for a boy to give to another boy! Hope he's back to 100% soon!
