Baby Whale for a Baby Boy!

Hi everyone!  TGIF!!  Hope you all had a great week!  Just wanted to share a baby card I had made recently.  Hope you like it!

It was pretty fun to make this card.  I cut the Bashful Blue cardstock by hand to create the waves and then sponged the edges with Whisper White ink.  The dots were stamped using the distressing stamp from Glitz in Indian Corn Blue ink from CTMH.  The clouds were also stamped in Indian Corn Blue onto Whisper White and cut out by hand.  Next, I adhered the waves with Stampin' Dimensionals to give it some extra dimension.  The stamp I used for the cloud was from a set called Owl Garden from Craft Affair by Hampton Arts.  The whale was a stamp I got from the $.99  bin at a local scrapbook store.  I believe it was from Imaginisce.  The words "It's A Boy" are from a Melissa Frances stamp set.  I highlighted the clouds and some dots with some Crystal Stickles for some added interest.  The heart was punched out of the Two Step Owl Punch and of course I added Glossy Accents to give it a wet look!  For the final touch I faux stitched around the card with a white Gelly Roll pen to tie everything all together.  It was sort of like my lipstick for the whole card!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!
