I decided to make a Congrats card for a friend who is having a baby. The Color Dare is actually not even a typical color dare this week...it's to use at least 2 different CTMH paper packs on your project. I used last summer's Footloose paper pack paired with the NEW Claire paper pack (dots). I added a bit of black for some extra pop.
The whale is from the Under the Sea stamp set. I first wanted to play with my new New Baby stamp set, which also has a whale, but that whale's water spray stuck up too high! (I guess technically I did play with the set, but it didn'twork out so well.) I accidentally deleted my angled shot of the whale...but there's glitz glitter gel on the swirls and water spout. And I fussy-cut the whale out and popped him up on 3D foam squares for dimension.
I could, however, still use the sentiment from New Baby: "Whale, what do you know? A new Baby." Love it! I stamped it on the inside, because it didn't fit in the spot I wanted to use on the front. So on the front I used "Congrats" from an oldie but goodie stamp set. I don't even remember the name...it's from a card set special several years ago.
I feel like this card needs a little more in the top left, but left it blank to stay true to the sketch. I may go back and change it, though!
Thanks for visiting today! Here are what the current CTMH products I used look like...
