Oh, Whale! Thanks a Ton Card

Today I’m sharing a card that I made using the Oh, Whale! stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #154.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

Oh, Whale!

Here is the list of products that you will need to create this card:

  • Oh, Whale! Stamp Set (129129 wood, 129132 clear)
  • Happy Whale Clearlits Die (129403)
  • Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies (129021)

  • SNAIL Adhesive (104332)

I started with a Pacific Point card base cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.  Then I cut a 2-1/2″ circle from Whisper White card stock using the Circles #2 Originals Die.  I stamped the whale image from the Oh, Whale stamp set on Whisper White card stock in Basic Gray ink and I cut it out with the Happy Whale Clearlits Die.  Next, I stamped the water spray image in Marina Mist, the wave image in Pacific Point and the sentiment in Melon Mambo ink on the Whisper White Circle.  I adhered the whale die cut to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I cut out a window frame from Pacific Point card stock using the 3rd die from the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies, embossed it with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and adhered it to the back of the circle with SNAIL.  I set aside the whale image and began working on the background.  From the Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP, I cut two strips of the wave paper to 1-1/2″ x 4″ and one panel of the whale paper to 2-1/2″ x 4″.  Then I cut a panel of Marina Mist card stock to 3-1/8″ x 4″ and a panel of Melon Mambo to 3-1/2″ x 4″, trimmed the ends with the Large Scallop Edgelits die and pierced the scallop pattern using the templete from the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack.  Then I adhered the whale DSP panel to the Marina Mist panel with SNAIL.  I adhered the Melon Mambo panel behind the Marina Mist panel with SNAIL and I adhered the two strips of the wave DSP to the Melon Mambo panel with SNAIL.  Then I adhered a piece of the 3/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon around the card front and adhered the decorated card front to the card base with SNAIL.  To finish the card, I adhered the layered whale image to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered a small bow under the image with a Glue Dot.
