'Valentine Penguins' Acetate Card

Hello to everyone!  Bev Gerard here to share a fun way to use the adorable Valentine Penguins stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs!  Seriously, it's so easy to color these sweeties you can quickly create lots of valentines in little time.
The penguin pair was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black then colored with Copics C7, C5, C3, C1 & C0, YR14, YR23, R30 & R32 with touches of a white gen pen.  Penguins are lifted up on foam tape and placed atop layered red & white heart shapes.  
Taking advantage of the acetate layer, the inside sentiment is atop smaller heart layers that are placed directly behind the front hearts.   This is fun to create and fun to receive!
Basic A2 Card style recipe:
Base card stock = 4.25" x 8".  Score at 5.5" on the long side.  Use any border die to create interest on the remaining 3" flap.   I layered a matching-cut piece of scrapbook paper atop the flap.
Acetate layer = 4.25" x 5.5".   Adhere this beneath the border cut flap.  Strips of dbl.-sided adhesive work well here.

Thanks for visiting today!
