A Whale of a Card

It is almost your last chance to get your hands on the Last Chance items! Monday is the last day, so wasting time isn't an option...especially when there are things left as adorable as the Whale Builder Punch!

Wednesday during What's Up! Stampers? I created a card with the Whale Builder Punch, and at the time, the Whale Done stamp set was still available. Of course, I paired it up!

I felt like the By the Bay Designer Series Paper was also perfect for this card, I used a piece of it on the front of the card. I couldn't help but use the Seaside Seashells dies and embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder on the card but wasn't sure where that piece would go. A fun fold card to the rescue!

As you can maybe see in the photo above, I started with a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock, measuring 5 1/2" x 7 3/4", scored at 4 1/4". I used the short side on the front, with the card opening the "wrong" way." After cutting a quarter sheet of Lost Lagoon cardstock with the Seaside Seashells Dies, I embossed it with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and used a Blending Brush to lightly brush the raised areas with Lost Lagoon ink, trimming it off on the folded side, as necessary.

To create the other part of the fun fold, I used one of Stampin' Up!®'s Basic White Notecards (from the Notecards & Envelopes pack) on top of the inside of the card. This is the part of the card that opens the "right" way.

Masking a circle and using the Whale Done stamp set made the inside of the card super cute, right? Do you notice that I embossed the little fishies in gold to mimic the Designer Series Paper on the outside of the card? So pretty! Using the returning colors in the new catalog - Lost Lagoon and Pretty Peacock - help make the card perfect. You can watch me make it by clicking here.

So now the stamp set has retired. Is the Whale Builder Punch still usable? Of course! Check out the pic again and notice that the punched out whale shown in it is all just punched pieces of cardstock.

For a list of all the supplies I used in this card, see the list - with links to my online store - below.
