Today's card is one that I made for a class earlier this year. I CASEd it from a card I received in a swap. I don't have the card with me right now, so I can't remember if there was a name on it. I loved the layout she used, and I just changed it up a little bit by using a different DSP and added Daffodil Delight to the color scheme.
I stamped the waves from the Oh, Whale stamp set (p. 29 in Spring Catalog) on the card using Marina Mist and Pacific Point ink onto the right side of a piece of Whisper White card stock. I then attached a strip of Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP (p. 28) to the left side of the piece. I attached it to a slightly larger piece of Daffodil Delight, and then attached it all to the Melon Mambo card base. I die-cut the Melon Mambo scallop circle using the largest scallop circle in the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die (p. 193). I then die-cut the Marina Mist circle using the 3" Circle Die (p. 193). I stamped the waves onto the bottom of the circle using Marina Mist ink. I then embossed the circle above the waves with the Cloudy Day Impressions Folder (p. 28 in Spring Catalog). I attached the blue circle to the pink scallop circle, and then attached it to the left-side of the card, lining the waves up with the ones on the card.
I stamped the whale onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock in Pacific Point ink, and die-cut it out with the Happy Whale Clearlits die (p. 29) I then die-cut the water spout, heart, and anchor with the same Happy Whale die. I attached the heart onto the whale, and then attached it all to the blue circle. I then attached the water spout above the whale with Multipurpose Glue (p. 177).
I then stamped the greeting from the Oh, Whale! set onto a piece of Whisper White card stock in Melon Mambo ink. I punched the greeting out with the Modern Label Punch (p. 183), and attached it at an angle under the right, bottom side of the whale. I then attached the anchor onto it with a little Glue Dot (p. 177) .
