Valentine penguins - A little present - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today it is my turn again to post something on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I am showing a little present that I have made. I made a little package for a chocolate bar. I have decorated the package with one of the cute penguins from the clear stamp set Valentine penguins from Gerda Steiner designs. I have stamped the penguin on Florence watercolour paper smooth from Vaessen creative with Versafine clair nocturne ink and then I embossed it with clear embossingpowder. I have coloured the image with Distress inks and then I have fussy cut the image. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 21 from Crealies I have die-cut a circle from white cardstock and stamped on it with the Background diagonals (retired) from Clearly besotted stamps and Versafine clair nocturne ink. I have cut a larger circle from pink cardstock with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 33 from Crealies and cut a scalloped circle from black cardstock with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 53 from Crealies. I have glued all circles on top of each other and added the image with foamtape.


The package is my own design and I made it from pink cardstock. With a black fineliner I have drawn dots on the package. I also tied a black ribbon around the box and glued the circles on the box.
