Make it Monday: Whale Cards & Bookmarks!

Hello friends! I hope this new week has started well for you. 🙂 Have you ever been whale watching? The Australian coastline provides us with many opportunities to observe these majestic creatures on their annual migration and I love that I can make cards that include them:

This Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper (DSP) celebrates aquatic life with images and colours straight from the sea – love it!

I had the idea to see if I could make a card and matching bookmark from one piece of 6″ x 6″ (15.2cm x 15.2cm) DSP.  CARD FRONT: I cut the paper at 4″ then used the 6″ x 4″ piece to create the card front. I cut off a small piece to use as a decorative strip on the white inside writing panel. BOOKMARK: I cut a 6 1/4″ x 2 1/4″  piece of coordinating cardstock – lots of colours to choose from! On one side, I adhered the remaining 6″ x 2″ piece of DSP. On the reverse side, I adhered a 6″ x 2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock: 

Here’s an example of the pieces needed for one card and bookmark and how I put them together (without using stamps or ink!):

This coordinating Whale Punch punched out whales from some of the DSP; I then attached the whales to the card fronts using adhesive foam dots 🙂

These cards make me smile!

And here’s an example of a card and matching bookmark – I love how these have turned out:

MEANWHILE … can you guess what’s happening on the weekend? I’ll let you know next week if I remembered!! 

If you haven’t visited my blog before I want to thank you for being here ? I love to share a little weekly inspiration (most weeks!) and if you have any questions I’d be very happy to answer them! Stay safe and keep well, Megan xo
