Oh for the love of penguins.....

Here is the project that I wanted to share with you guys! It's a tri shutter card that I made on Sunday using the new Penguin Love stamp set. I have had so much fun with this set! There are a ton of stamps in this set and I wanted to make a project where I could incorporate as many of the images as possible. Not only was I able to do that but this folds up nicely into a standard 5.5x4.25 size card!! I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to part with this bad boy after all of the time I put into it but it's the thought that counts right?? ;)

I created the card base first in Ruby Red, added the white layer to each of the sections then added DP by SEI and 3 Bugs In A Rug in alternating sections. All of the images were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black onto white card stock and colored with a blender pen and various SU inks. I then added some sparkle to all of the ice with my favorite Stardust Gelly Roll pen. All of the images were cut out and adhered to the card base using dimensionals.
Here are some close ups of the different sections-
