Whale of a Time - You're Kind of a Big Deal!

The great thing about purchasing the Stampin' Up! suites is that everything comes coordinated for you. No having to try to find coordinating colors or embellishments for your cards! The colors in the Whale of a Time Suite Collection are (*indicates used in this card):
Granny Apple Green*
Just Jade, Pacific Point
I used the following cuts of cardstock:

Whisper White (mat for designer series paper): 3⅛" x 4⅛"
Jellyfish Designer Series Paper: 3" x 4"
Calypso Coral (horizontal strip): 1" x 5½”
I also used the following stamps and punch from the matching set as well as dies from the Layering Squares die set:
You're Kind of a Big Deal! sentiment stamp from the Whale Done stamp set
Whale stamp from the Whale Done stamp set
1¼" square die from the Layering Squares die set
1½" scalloped square die from the Layering Squares die set
Using your paper trimmer, cut your Granny Apple Green cardstock to 11” x 4¼” and score at 5½”
Take your bone folder and crease the scored fold
Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 3⅛" x 4⅛" as a mat for the designer series paper
Flip through the designer series paper for the Whale of a Time suite and find the colorful paper with multiple jellyfish on it, cut a piece to 3" x 4"
Cut a piece of Calypso Coral to 1" x 5½”
Place the front of your card base into the Seabed 3D embossing folder and run it through your Big Shot (or equivalent)
Place the Calypso Coral piece in the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and run it through your Big Shot (or equivalent)
Stamp your "You're Kind of a Big Deal!" sentiment stamp in Calypso Coral ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock
Using the 1¼" square die from the Layering Squares die set, die cut the stamped sentiment
Using a scrap piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, die cut the 1½" scalloped square die from the Layering Squares die set
Stamp the whale image from the Whale Done stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink onto Whisper White cardstock (I was able to use scrap Whisper White cardstock for this so make sure to check your scrap pile!)
Using the whale punch, punch out your two Blackberry Bliss whales
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the embossed Calypso Coral cardstock and adhere, centered, on the Granny Apple Green card base
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the jellyfish designer series paper and adhere, centered to the Whisper White mat
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the Whisper White mat and adhere it at an angle over the Calypso Coral/Granny Apple Green card base (see image for further details)
Place Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of your punched whales and the sentiment
Adhere the sentiment to the center of your card base and the whales
As a finishing touch, take a few of the Whale of a Time sequins from the suite and, using your Take Your Pick tool apply a few using your fine tip glue pen to your card
Happy card making!
