Get Whale CANDi's...

Holly here from Ribbons & Glue sharing a Get Well card using School Days and Icing Sugar CANDi's.

 The free cut file this week over in Silhouette Store is a whale and waves.  I love those free files, look forward to them every week.  Have you noticed the nautical theme is starting to trend again or maybe it's just  just the excitement of Summer?  Probably a lil' of both.

Get Whale Soon Card

I chose to only use the whale from the cut file even though the waves did get my creative juices a rockin'.  I get terribly sea sick so I don't actually encourage the rocking of anything.

 I used Echo Park Dots & Stripes paper as the card mat and adhered it on to the card base by sewing a zig zag stitch.  Love red stitching on Kraft paper {love}!  I then incorporated School Days and Icing Sugar CANDi's to tie all my nautical themed colors together.

To complete the Get Well card, I stamped a punny sentiment from K. Andrew Designs 'cause Get Well cards are suppose to provide some cheer, wrapped Hemptique twine around the tail and added a Gold stick pin for some shine.

I originally had the stick pin stuck behind the whale.  Looked like the poor thing was harpooned.  Axed that idea....don't need them Whale Wars crazies after me!
