Whale Done

I'm so in love with the Whale of a Time Product Suite in the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue!  I live on the West Coast and spend lots of time on the water, so maybe that's the reason.  We made this card during one of my free Zoom classes recently and I really like how it turned out.

Who wouldn't love to receive this card!

Isn't the turtle adorable!!


  1. Cut Pretty Peacock cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut 5 pieces of Pretty Peacock 1 3/8" x 1 7/8"
  4. Cut 5 pieces of Whisper White cardstock 1 3/8" x 1 7/8"
  5. Stamp different images on each 4 of the Whisper White cardstock pieces using Pretty Peacock, Old Olive and Pool Party ink.
  6. Adhere each to one of the pieces of Pretty Peacock cardstock using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Adhere each to the card base using Dimensionals - they are arrange approximately 1/2" from the the top and sides and there should be approximately 1/2" between the pieces.
  8. Stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and some of the plants in Old Olive (stamped off) on the last piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  9. Adhere to the last piece of Pretty Peacock using Stampin' Seal.
  10. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals - in the middle of the other 4 pieces
The supply list for this project is provided at the bottom of the post.
