ICS Blog Hop: Whale Done


Hello, and welcome to the May Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! We are glad you are hopping with us.


This month, our theme is "It's a Guy Thing." I don’t have many masculine sets, but I consider the Whale Done Stamp Set a masculine set. Especially the stamp that says, “You’re Kind of a Big Deal.” It just seems like a saying that any guy would like to hear!

Here is my card:

I used the punch for the whale, cuz I really wanted it to be an Orca. They seem like a bigger deal than just regular whales to me...lol! I stamped the seaweed across the bottom, and used the birthday sentiment from the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set.  

I cut out a window in the Basic White cardstock, using the Hippo & Friends Dies, and put a piece of the Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper behind the window to resemble the ocean. That is such beautiful paper, better get it while you can, as it will retire at the end of June. 

Inside, I used the Big Deal saying. It fit perfectly! Do you have any "Big Deals" in your life? Father's Day is coming, and all you have to do is change the front sentiment to make the guy in your life feel like he is something special!

Hope you like my card. Please leave a comment if you do! Now, join me as we hop on over to Deb's blog to see what manly creation she has to share with us!

Until next time....
Happy Craftin'!
