You Are Jaw-some
by Kim Singdahlsen
I adore all of the Whittles (even the Whittle Shark!!) One of the many reasons that I love them are they are perfect for cards for my sons. They are 21 and 25-years old so I really cannot use anything cutesy (nor anything with bling). The Whittles strike the perfect middle ground; they are absolutely charming (but not cutesy). Then the variety of sentiments in all of the Whittle stamp sets make them useful for any occasion.
My card uses the new Whittle Shark backed by a Whittle Wave with a sentiment from Whittle Sealife.
I broke my sons' "no-bling" rule in two ways, but it just had to be done. First, I cut the Whittle Waves out of the kraft color, then I cut a separate blue. I wanted there to be a little bit of sparkle in the water so I offset the blue waves in the opening and added a small piece of glitter paper from Memory Box. That gave it the hint of sparkle without being all-out bling. Second, I love accenting my sentiments and I often do it with sequins or gems but in this case I used the new Fairy Drops. I think it gave a watery look without truly being bling!
The sentiment is just right! How awesome to have a jaw-some sentiment!
I picked my cardstock to match that Memory Box plaid. I love how this turned out - fabulous dies and papers and just enough bling for my taste!
