A Whimsical Card by Jessica

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current challenge! Today I decided to focus on the colors of the challenge to create a punny ocean-themed holiday card!

I have a good friend whose son has discovered the “baby shark” song recently so I thought this would be a fun Christmas card to send to them! 😉 And she’ll probably kill me for getting it stuck in her head again! (If you don’t know what I’m talking about DON’T look it up unless you want it in your head forever! Seriously.)

To start I blended stormy sky and faded jeans distress ink onto a piece of Strathmore Bristol cardstock. I also blended stormy sky and Forget-Me-Not ink onto a second piece of Strathmore Bristol cardstock. I die-cut that panel with the Ocean Hillside Pop-Up dies and adhered them over the other blended panel. Then I stamped, colored, and die-cut the shark fin from Duh-Nuh with warm grey Copics and tucked it behind the top wave. Next I die-cut the first part of my sentiment from Sticky Note cardstock using Finley’s ABCs and adhered them to my front panel.

On the inside of the card I started by die-cutting the Ocean Wave Accents on the bottom of the panel. Then I die-cut the rest of my sentiment with Moonstone cardstock and the same Finley’s ABCs and adhered them to the inside of the card. I stamped the shark from Duh-Nuh and colored him with warm grey Copic markers and die-cut him with the coordinating dies. Then I stamped and colored the Santa hat from Baaah Humbug with pinkish shades and die-cut it with the coordinating dies. Finally I adhered my shark and added the Santa hat at a jaunty angle! (It’s hard to decide where to put a Santa hat on a fish!

And that’s my punny take on the challenge colors! You have two more weeks to get crafty with our inspiration photo and I can’t wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!

The Wonderful Winter challenge is a 3 week challenge closing at 11:59PM ET on Sunday, January 6th. We can’t wait to see your creative take on our inspiration!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!

  1. This is just too fintastic! 🙂 Such a clever card, beautifully constructed, great play on the challenge colors – and, actually, perfect for this time of year (not just the adorbs song)! I live in So. Cal and our Shark Lab at CSULB just detected their first juvenile white shark of the “season”. Merry jawsomness to all!
