Free weekly card making tutorials using Stampin' Up! products.
This week I am using the Whale Done stamp set and matching punch to create this nautical themed card
The spring flowers are blooming and thoughts are turning to holidays! The background to this card reminds me of a beach towel and it's really easy to create.
You will need a piece of Basic White, 14.85cm by 10.5cm, four Basic White strips, 10.5cm by 1cm and five Bermuda Bay strips also 10.5cm by 1cm
Position the rectangle of Basic White in portrait, stick one of the Bermuda Bay strips along the bottom, then add a white strip butted against it. Repeat with the Bermuda Bay then, continue until you have used all the strips.
I then used the largest Deckled Rectangle die to cut it out (13cm by 9.5cm).
Poppy Parade A6 book fold card blank
Basic White, 13.9cm by 9.5cm for the inside, 12cm by 9cm for the sentiment piece, and extra for whale
Bermuda Bay, scrap for water splash
Stamp Set and Punch
Whale Done and punch.
Bermuda Bay, Poppy Parade, Memento Black
The tear drops are now retired but the clear Elegant Faceted gems would work really well
See below for links to my Stampin' Up! shop for all the materials.
Make the towel as detailed above
Stamp the whale on Basic White in Memento Black and punch it out. Punch the water splashes from Bermuda Bay.
Die cut the sentiment panel from Basic White using the 3rd largest Deckled Rectangle die (10cm by 6.5cm), Stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay, the hearts in Poppy Parade and use second generation stamping for the fish in Bermuda Bay.
Add the whale and water splashes using dimensionals and decorate with the embellishments
Assemble the card, the sentiment piece is on dimensionals, the remaining piece of Basic White is for the inside.
