1- Emboss the 3 7/8” x 5 ½” Basic White Cardstock with the Gingham Embossing Folder. Add it to the center of the coordinating cardstock piece. I used Balmy Blue & Soft Succulent. Then place everything in the center of the Crumb Cake cardbase.

2- Stamp two standing otters near the bottom of a large scrap piece of Basic White Cardstock. If you want, you can use the masking technique so they layer one over the other. Do this by stamping the left otter first, layer a mask made from a post-in note over the first image. Then stamp the second one so it slightly overlaps the first. Then remove the mask.

3- Stamp a couple balloon strings from the Penguin Place Set in the otter’s hands.

4- Color the Otters with neutral Stampin’ Blend Markers. I used Crumb Cake in the center, then both Gray Granite shades for the otter on the left, and light Smoky Slate & Dark Gray Granite for the otter on the right. Use the darker colors to add shading.

5- Fussy cut out all the images together and place below middle on the cardbase with dimensionals.

6- Stamp balloons from the Penguin Place Set in coordinating colors. I used Balmy Blue & Night of Navy or Soft Succulent & Shaded Spruce ink. Then punch or fussy cut out. Add them to the top of the balloon strings. Use dimensionals on some.

7- Stamp your greeting on the ½” strip in coordinating ink, Night of Navy/Shaded Spruce. Flag the left side with the Banners Pick A Punch and adhere with dimensionals under the otters.

All Done.
