Get Whale Soon

Today I have a get well card.   I like the idea and cuts on the Just Because Cards cartridge with this same theme and phrase but, I don't like the whale on that cartridge as much as the super cute whale on the B is for Boy Lite cartridge.   So, I started with a navy blue A2 base card and then used a blue mat that I cut across the top with a Fiskars waves border punch.   The anchor sheet is open stock from  Reminisce that is shimmery.   I bought it back in the summer and loved it but hadn't had a reason to use it yet.  

The whale was cut at 3 3/4" and the phrase cut on 4" for the Just Because Cards cartridge.   I used a dark blue and light blue textured paper for the whale and then the same light blue paper for the word 'whale' on the phrase.   I inked the edges of the phrase and the whale and then pop dotted both on.   Once I thought I was done, I decided some Stickles in Waterfall would be perfect for the whale's spout and then the word 'whale'.  
  
On the inside, I used the same blue paper and again, border punched it with the waves punch.   I added a piece of white ribbon with some glittered anchors.   I am really loving this one.   Makes me think the person who receives it will feel better just looking at that cute little whale!!
