The Spot Challenge #147 - Get Your Heart On Theme Challenge with Stampin' Up! Whale Done Bundle

 Hi There!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  I'm back over with the Design Team at The Spot with a "love" themed card this week that is just a little different!

Since I don't have a lot of Heart or Valentine's Themed Stamps, I decided to use one of my very favorite sets from the Annual Catalog for an Anniversary Card for my hubby, Jeff!

My anniversary is February 18th, just 4 days after Valentine's Day.  Jeff and I had wanted to get married on Valentine's Day but couldn't work out the logistics of it!  We are huge lovers of Cruises and all things Nautical so I thought that this adorable Whale Done Bundle would work perfectly for an anniversary card!  I love this sentiment!  I can tell you that from going on so many cruises that when you are in the middle of the Ocean on a huge Cruise Ship, you really understand just how BIG the Ocean is!  

I started out with an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" card base of Pacific Point Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4" I used the Whale of a Time DSP for my background cut 3 3/4" x 5" and matted it on layer of Night of Navy Cardstock that measured 3 7/8 x 5 1/8" for a nice thin border that left a lot of the beautiful Pacific Point Cardstock showing!  I heat embossed the sentiment in White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  The focal Circle was more of the Whale of a Time DSP cut using the largest circle in the Stitched Shape Dies and I backed it with the largest Scalloped Circle from the Layering Circles Dies cut in Night of Navy Cardstock.  I ran a piece of Pool Party 3/8" sheer ribbon around the panel and tied it in a bow on the right side prior to adhering the Circle with Dimensionals.  The Whale was punched out of the DSP as well.. I feel like I totally cheated on this card using so much DSP! lol  I finished this one off by adding three of the Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems... so pretty!

Here's how I finished the inside

The bottom portion of course is from the Whale Done Stamp Set stamped in Calypso Coral and Pretty Peacock with another punched "Whale" from the DSP.  The top sentiment is from the Floral Essence Stamp Set and the bottom sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous week and make some time to get your craftiness on!  Blessings, Tina
