It's been a "whale"

Get it?  ha.  But it really has.  Lots of changes the past year.  New car... New job...  New place... New love.  All for the better :)  After seeing this post, I felt inspired to make a card using the same layering technique.  If you have not visited Maile Belle's blog, Simply Stamped, I suggest you take a peek.  I love her style of making cards.

So on to the card, shall we?  First off, I used white cardstock to make a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.  To make the waves, cut light blue cardstock into strips 3 3/4" wide.  I used a pencil to draw wavy lines and then cut three cards in 3 strips with differing heights.  I adhered the longest one directly onto the card.  You can't really tell from the picture above, but I used pop-up dimensionals to attach the middle layer.  The sentiment, from Papertrey Ink's Whale Wishes stamp set, was stamped in Stampin' Up's Basic Gray.  Love this stamp set.  The whale is so cute! 

I used the coordinating Whale Wishes die to cut out a whale from shiny silver cardstock and I nestled the little guy between the bottom and middle layers.  The water spout was stamped with Stampin' Up's Bashful Blue.  And there you have it :)  Enjoy your day!

Supplies Used
Cardstock:  white, light blue
Stamp: Whale Wishes (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:  Basic Gray, Bashful Blue (Stampin' Up)
