Have a Narwhal of a Time

The challenge this week over on the Lawnscaping Challenge blog is to use text.

Narwhal Card

I use two Lawn Fawn stamp sets, Critters in the Sea and Critters Ever After. I wanted to turn my cute whale into an even cuter Narwhal (If you don’t know these are whales that have one large spiral horn on the top of their head, I love them) so I added the horn from the unicorn stamp to turn him into one.

I started by curving the text stamp into a wave shape, I love the flexibility of clear stamps! Then I stamped it repeatedly onto vellum paper and cut it out with a wave shape at the top.

I then stamped my whale into polka dot pattern paper (My Mind’s Eye) cut it out and inked the edges using a sponge dauber.

I stamped just the top of the unicorn onto scrap brown paper twice and cut out the horns, layering them to make one longer horn. And glued it to the whale’s head.

I adhered my vellum paper onto striped pattern paper (also My Mind’s Eye) and blue cardstock, putting the adhesive on the vellum where the ribbon would go so it wouldn’t show. Then wrapped the ribbon around adding a knot and button. I adhered those layers to my brown cardstock base.

Lastly I stamped stars and colored them with a glitter gel pen and tucked the Narwhal a little under the vellum. I think he turned out so cute!
