Today's card was created specifically for a friend of mine. I'm trying to send out more Happy Mail and she came to mind because she's been having a rough time lately. I thought it might cheer her up to receive a random card!
I created a small shaker area inside of my snow globe and used Flower Soft in polar white as snow. It looks gorgeous. Unfortunately, it doesn't shake very well, but I don't think my friend will mind. I started the card by creating the penguin scene on a panel. I then cut another panel and cut out the globe so that it would reveal my scene. I used ink blending for the water and sky and copics to color the penguin and the ice float. The sentiment was simply heat embossed in silver. It's a simple card, but I think it's quite striking!
