Whale thank you card

Ever since I saw JustJin's "I Whaley Love You" card on her blog, I've been thinking about doing something with that file.  I needed a thank you card this week, so I was able to use it for that.

I changed the sentiment for the whale and used the other whale in the Seven Seas Graphic collection (altered - it seems ike I alter everything!), but the colors and design on the outside are very similar.  But I had been thinking about was what to do different with the inside.  I wanted to something with the water blowing up from the blowhole of the whale.  Here is what I came up with.
The outside was printed with the block method of colors in PSE, and cut on the cricut using MTC.  The graphic files are from the Seven Seas collection and the background is from Banner Day (colors altered in PSE), "wave".  Love those googly eyes!

The inside has a little surprise. 

I really didn't know how to make this type of pop-up card, so I winged it as I went along.  The water fount is hand drawn and folded.  I printed the graphics for the inside directly on the card stock before hand-cutting the card base from GP cardstock.  I actually made the inside of the card first and completed the front last.

Here's a close up of the Glossy Accents that I used for water drops.

I hope you enjoy!  My thanks to JustJin for inspiration.  If you want to pick up any of the collections or papers, they are still on sale at Lettering Delights - just click the link at the top of my blog.
