Stampin' Up! Whale Done Birthday Card for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge. I can't wait to see what the other team members created. Hop along with us at the bottom of my post.

Here is my interpretation...

I absolutely love the Whale Done Bundle and coordinating Designer Series Paper. You need this peeps! The punch will punch out the larger whale on the DSP but you can also stamp it and punch out. I let Stampin' Up! do the work for me! Moby is adhered with Dimensionals. Measurements and product used are listed below.

The inside is quick and easy to do.

I adhered a strip of DSP at the bottom, stamped a couple of schools of fish in Pool Party ink and the sentiment in Pacific Point. I matted the panel on a piece of Pacific Point card stock and adhered it to the base with liquid glue. Then I sponged the white part with Pacific Point ink.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and thank you for joining the hop. Clicking on the "next" button will take you to Akiko Sudano. Clicking on the names below will take you directly to the other team members and their projects.
