Today's card is a fun baby card, with a twist!
The card is a 5"x5" twisted easel card. I used black card stock to construct the card base. I cut blue mats at 4 7/8"x4 7/8," and polka dot mats at 4 3/4"x4 3/4." I used the "ZooBalloo" Cricut cartridge to cut the waves. These are found on page 131 of the handbook. The smallest set of waves was cut at 3/4" and two sets were welded together, then trimmed to fit the card. The second set was cut at 5" wide, to fit the card. That made them just over 1" tall. The third set was cut at 1 1/2" and the final set was cut at 2." All the waves were inked around the edges with Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I adhered the first three sets of waves together, then used foam tape to pop them up in the middle, while adhering the edges to the card. The final layer was adhered to the card.
The whale was cut from the "Tiny Treasures" Cricut cartridge. It is on page 38 of the handbook. The whale was cut at 3." I added some waterfall Stickles to the spurt of water and black enamel to his eye. I finished off the front of the card with some cloudy blue gems in the top corners.
The blue and polka dot mats are the same for the inside as the outside. I then cut another piece of blue card stock at 4"x4" and some white card stock at 3 7/8"x3 7/8." I used a stamp from the "Big Sentiments 2" stamp set by My Craft Spot for the sentiment. I then finished off the card with my "stopper," which is a large cloudy blue gem.
I made this for the following challenges:
My Craft Spot: black, white, & one other color
The Friday Mashup: fun fold project with some polka dots
