A Grumpy Birthday Card by Fliss Goodwin


Hi there, I have a clean and simple birthday card to share this week that I actually made for my eldest nephew. I always find cards for young men quite difficult so I decided on something a little jokey this time.


Tim Holtz Cling Mounted Stamp Sets – Crazy Things, Crazy Thoughts
White Square Card Blank (or make your own)


Stamp the penguins near the base of the card with the black ink. Stamp the balloon string next to the smallest penguin and stamp a balloon on top. You’ll see it looks as if he’s holding the balloon.

Colour the balloon and the penguins with the coloured pencils. I looked the penguins up on the internet to check the colour of these little guys and was glad I did as they have some very bright plumage on their heads.

Stamp the text above the penguins to finish.

There you have it, short and sweet! Perfect for a quick card and someone who doesn’t appreciate fussy.

Have a great weekend and see you next week.
