Dale the whale


First, I cut a piece of Whale Of A Time, ocean waves, using an Ornate Layers Die. I love the detailed edge on this die, don’t you?


Next, I fussy cut (cut by hand) the adorable whale from the Whale Of A Time Designer Paper, and placed him on Dimensionals. I love names that rhyme, so his name is Dale. He’s blowing bubbles with a stamp I used from the Whale Done Stamp Set.

This picture also shows the Ornate Layers Die I used to cut Balmy Blue Cardstock for the sentiment. I stamped “Whale Done!,” and the fish, from the Whale Done Stamp Set, in Night Of Navy Ink.


The background is Balmy Blue Cardstock, cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die ( 3″ X 4 1/4″ ), layered on a Night Of Navy card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″).

And, that’s it for my “clean & simple” card, otherwise known as “CAS.” 


I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
