I have time for a quick post this morning before heading out. One of my good friends here in San Diego has a birthday next week. I just got some new Hero Arts stamp sets and used one to make her a birthday card.
I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the colors from this week's Sunday Stamps Challenge.
I started off by stamping the water using Distress Oxide Broken China on a square piece of X-Press It Blending card stock. I did the same on the card base of Island Indigo card stock. The darker whale is stamped in SU Bordering Blue, Midnight Muse and Craft white. The lighter whale is stamped with Hero Arts Dusty Blue, Stone Wash and Memento Black. Then they were cut out using the corresponding die. I added the banner in SU Bravo Burgundy and stamped the greeting with Hero Arts Mulled Wine. The white panel was glued down, then the whales were added. The lighter one is popped up with dimensionals. Lastly, I added some turquoise sequins for some shimmer.
Here is the inside:
