Stampin’ Up! Shark Friends Birthday Card

I used the oh, so cute Shark Frenzy stamp set bundle from Stampin’ Up! along with a little of the Whale Of A Time 6″ x 6″ DSP to create a fun birthday card to share with you today.

My card design was inspired by My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 526.

And my card works for the Inspire.Create.Challenge #083.

I started by adhering a panel from the Whale Of A Time 6″ x 6″ DSP to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I cut another panel of the Whale Of A Time DSP with one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and I adhered the die cut panel to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.

I cut panels of Calypso Coral and Basic White card stocks with the bubble and coral dies from the Shark Dies and then adhered the die cuts with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (you can also apply Adhesive Sheets to the card stock panels prior to cutting them for easy adhering!).

I stamped the shark outline images from the Shark Frenzy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then stamped the “fill in” images in Basic Gray and Gray Granite inks.  I cut the stamped images with the Shark Dies and then adhered them with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front to finish it.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Handsomely Suited stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Then I added the baby shark images and sentiment from the Shark Frenzy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento, Gray Granite and Pretty Peacock inks to finish the inside of the card.

You can see a list of supplies used to create this project, including the card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this blog post.
