Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #58

Good Morning dear friends!!!  I'm so glad it's Wednesday!!  I am still trying to get back into the swing of things after our vacation in Washington last week!  I did spend the evening making a card for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge.  It felt so good to craft for fun and get my creative juices flowing once again!!!

Here's the challenge:

Make It Monday #58- Graduated Backgrounds

and here's my take on the challenge:

I used PTI's Whale Wishes Stamp set along with their Movers and Shakers: Sliders dies. I used Copic Markers for this technique as posted in this video:
 After I colored a square piece of paper with Copic markers, I cut three strips and punched each of them with a scallop punch.  After I scalloped the edges, I glued them to a piece of computer paper and die cut the entire piece with the tag portion of the Movers and Shakers die.  That way, I had a perfect match to the original interactive portion of the card.

I stamped the inside of the interactive tag using PTI Movers and Shakers Sentiments Stamp sets.  The Whale Wishes stamps were a little larger than the space inside the card, so I used my computer to print the sentiment onto the patterned paper.
I inked the Whale with Enchanted Evening Ink and then I pressed the inked stamp onto a dry Gingham Background Basics stamp.  Then, I stamped the image onto a die cut whale resulting in the subtle gingham pattern on the image.  Way fun!!

Okay this is the cutest little whale card. You are making me want to go order it right now. You are making those slider cards look easy. I still haven't tried out the slider die I purchased. I may have to now.
