get whale soon cards

It's no secret how much I love Studio Calico's Copper Mountain card kit, and I don't think I'm alone. That whale is just too cute!! I decided to make another card based on this card from my gallery.

This time I made a horizontal card, and I changed up the colors of the background and waves. The chevron paper is from the Copper Mountain 4x6 paper pad. The waves are from the Spaulding Bowl card add-on.

Here's how this card came together:

Dimensions: The base is a standard card size, 4.25x5.5". The patterned paper background is 4x5.25". The waves were cut with my Cameo using the Copper Mountain digital stamp files that are available at Studio Calico for only a few more days. I cut the banner from white cardstock with my Cameo also. It's about 1.25x2".

Inks: The whale is Hero Arts Cornflower. Hearts and fish are Hero Arts Pale Tomato. The sprout is a mixture of Hero Arts Navy and Cornflower. I stamped in Navy, added Cornflower without cleaning the stamp and stamped again.

Dies: I used the dies from the card kit to cut out the whale, spout, hearts and fish. I always stamp first and then cut. The washi tape holds the die in place.

I adhered the patterned paper, banner and waves and then stitched around the edges and over the waves with my sewing machine. The whale and fish were adhered with dimensional adhesive. For the hearts and spout I used my glue pen.

That's it! I hope you have fun making some whale cards too!
