I’ve been sharing a lot of many-layered cards over the past week. I decided today’s card should stay super-simple and super-cute. The Whale Done Bundle and Whale of a Time 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper helped me to make the card I wanted to make. This week’s CAS(E) This Sketch also helped. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Whale Done Bundle. My card features a sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set and a whale that’s punched with the Whale Builder Punch (thought the whale was not stamped with this stamp set). I do love a photopolymer/punch bundle – and this is a really, really good one. ♥ Here’s a look at the Whale Done Bundle, which really should be added to your wish list if you don’t already have it: Here are two projects I’ve already made with this bundle (similar to today’s card, these are both clean-and-simple projects (you can click on either project to see my original post for each):
- Whale of a Time. The samples above show a whale that’s punched from cardstock and a whale that I stamped and then punched with the Whale Builder Punch. Today’s project showcases a whale that is punched from the Whale of a Time 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this wonderful pack of papers:Here are the two pages featured on my card – the whale was punched from this page: Here’s a closer look at my punched whale: Here’s the background of aqua waves I cropped from this page:
- Color Combination. Both of the cards I’ve already created with the Whale Builder Punch include Pretty Peacock and some combination of greens or aquas. For today’s card, I punched a Basic Gray whale from the papers and surrounded him with Pretty Peacock, Bermuda Bay and Just Jade waves – they are gorgeous, aren’t they? If you like the mix of Just Jade, Pretty Peacock and Basic Gray, please save this for future reference:
