Hello bloggers! I'm back again tonight to quickly share a card I made for Jacob Thompson. In case you haven't already heard about him, he is a nine-year-old boy who is dying of cancer. The article I read says that he may not live until Christmas, so he wanted Christmas cards to be sent to him from all over. My MIL said that she heard he loves penguins, so that is the direction I took with this card:
I used the penguins and the larger Santa hat from Toboggan Together, and the smaller hat from Cheery Christmas, all from Lawn Fawn of course. The igloo is a cut file I purchased from the Silhouette store. I inked the outer edge of the main body of the igloo, and also each ice brick with Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I inlaid all the bricks back into their places either with Tombow glue or clear dimensional Scotch adhesive squares. The penguins are also popped up with Scotch foam tape. I glued all of this to a blue "outline" of the igloo shape that is glued to an identical piece to make a card. I stamped "Merry Christmas" from Toboggan Together using the same ink on the inside, as well as some snowflakes from the set. I hope this card will help to brighten his day when he receives it!
