Whale of a Tale Card!

School is out and summer is officially here! Raechelle is back with an adorable beach card and she is showing us an awesome way in which to use The Perfect Summer Pair!

Fussy cut wave paper, whale, and sea creatures from patterned paper. Apply glossy accents to sea critters and allow to dry.

Cut dark blue background paper to 1/8” smaller than card base. Adhere to white cardstock.

Using the Perfect Paper Crafting cutting mat and Perfect Layers Mini 1/16” trim around patterned paper and adhere to card base.

Trim fussy cut waves to width of card and layer, adding dimension. (I adhered the first layer to background paper and then used foam tape to the second main layer. I then added a third layer between the two and glued it onto the back of the dimensional layer.)

To create sailboat: freehand cut a boat body and adhere under the waves of the first layer of waves. Adhere a toothpick to create the mast. For the sails, cut two squares from patterned paper, one slightly smaller than the first. Trim into triangles. Mount one of each of the two different sizes onto white cardstock. Using the Perfect Ruler, trim 1/16” around them.  Adhere to background paper (I used foam tape on the top corners only to give the “sails” some added dimension) and finish off with button twine bows.

Add sea creatures throughout the layers of wave papers, and add a few sequins for a visual effect.
