I had some fun making this card with Wilber the penguin with periwinkle feet. I coloured him with my tombow markers and I stamped Wilber in basic black. I stamped the ornaments in purple and used periwinkle embossing powder on the one ornament and green sparkle on the other that one only sees when you move the card around. I cut out the areas where I wanted the images to show through on the black cardstock. I stamped the evergreen in versamark which is a clear sticky pad and used my perfect Pearl's in magenta and a green to create the look.  I glued the black onto the white and added green ribbon as a frame. Wilber, the Penguin stamp must be at least 15 yrs old and the ornament about 10 years. The evergreen stamp is 3 yrs old. I think my Christmas Wilber card turned out ok.


  1. You've had that penguin stamp a long time. A favorite? He's cute.

  2. Nice, Birgit!

    Again, this is something different, a non-traditional Christmas card and a refreshing change from Santas and Frostys. I needed to look up the color periwinkle to learn that it ranges from a light lavender blue to a deep almost confederate blue. I also admire the green and purple shades on the card, and Wilbur the Penguin is a cute, endearing character.
