Blogging Friends Blog Hop - Summer Parties

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing the project I made for this month's Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month our theme was Summer Parties.  So, I thought what would make a good summer party invitation and I immediately thought of the Whale of A Time Suite of Products.   So I pulled out my products along with some others from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and got to work.  This is the card I came up with.  

I started my card design by picking my piece of designer series paper.  I knew I wanted to use the Whale of A Time Designer Series Paper as my background.  So I picked my pattern paper.  But, I needed a sentiment so I picked out the Playful Alphabet Dies and created my own.  I attached one of the Foam Adhesive Sheets to a scrap piece of Pool Party Cardstock and cut out the words You're Invited.  I the adhered them to my designer series paper.  

I then attached my  designer series paper piece to a Calypso Coral Mat that was cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3.8.  Next I attached this to my card base.  I stamped the whale from the Whale Done Stamp set and used the matching punch to punch it out.  The whale was popped up on a few Stampin' Dimensionals under the sentiment.  I then added a few of the Whale of A Time Sequins around the card using mini glue dots to finish off my card.  I love the tone on tone sentiment and how it pops out on the foam adhesive sheets.
