I am in love with whales. Not sure why. I live in land-locked Colorado. We don’t have many whales here. I think it started the movie Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. I am a Sci-Fi geek along with the rest of my family. There are humpback whales in the movie and the combination of whales and Star Trek fueled my love affair for the critters. Back in 2003 my family took a trip to Hawaii during Spring Break and I got to see whales every day as they migrated north. I was in heaven! I wouldn’t let my family go get breakfast until I saw a whale in the morning!
Anyway, once I saw this cute little whale in the Occasions Catalog I knew that I’d be eventually purchasing the Hello, Sailor stamp set. Once I had the stamp set I was on a mission to make a card using the adorable whale. I did CASE this card and added my own twist to it. I loved the idea of using the Simply Scored Borders Plate to make the little waves on the bottom of the card. Too fun! I’m going to admit right now that I’ve had this accessory to the Simply Scored since it came out and this is the first time I’ve used it….Yikes! I will be using it more often now though since it really adds to the card.
I made the little banner pieces with the fun Banner Punch that was in the Sale-a-bration Brochure and the High Tide Designer Series Paper. Don’t worry if you didn’t get the Banner Punch during Sale-a-bration…..it will be in the new 2014-2015 Catalog! I die cut the large “ahoy” banner with the Banners Framelits.
I just have to say it….this card is TSC! Too Stinkin’ Cute! It has to be….it has a whale on it! 🙂
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Staming!
