I 'Whaley' Love You! Card

It is that time of year again! The time when we get an extra excuse to tell others how much we love them. I am a fan of doing things to show love all year round, but that doesn't mean we can’t have some extra fun with Valentine's Day!

I have been waiting to use this design for months as a Valentine Card and I LOVE how it turned out! It can be for any gender and any age, so have fun with it!
Below is a list of the items I used to make the card and a fun tip on how to make the waves look great and crisp!


o   I 'Whaley' Love You design from Rivka’s Renditions
o   Silhouette Users: I whaley love you
o   All other SVG Users: I whaley love you
o   4”x12” White Cardstock (folded in half vertically)
o   4 – 4”x2” Strips of Blue Cardstock (for the waves)
o   Washi tape, glue, foam squares, & Copic markers

Tips & Tricks!

Making crisp and pointed waves – Have you ever tried cutting waves out by hand? You finally get it down and then they don’t look even, or they get all bent. Well here is a way to have some fun waves with crisp edges! Take a circle paper punch and turn it upside-down (so that you can see where the paper is). Only put the paper in about half way so that you are in essence creating a half circle. Overlap the circles as you cut them so they create the peaks. You can make the waves close together or far apart by moving where you punch the paper.
