Sister Stamps Release #16 - Day 3 - Dolphin Set

Do you know what day it is? Come on, you know what day it is! Have you seen that GEICO commercial with the camel? I think that commercial is hilarious! So, you all know what today is, right? It's HUMP day! Bwahaha!  Ok, moving on to my project. Today I'm featuring the Dolphin set. The set comes with two dolphins, but I stamped one of them twice so I would have three of them. I don't know if it's an Asian thing or a local thing, but whenever I make something, I need to use an odd number of items. So like, I wouldn't be able to only put two dolphins on my card. I had to use three. My bling is also in threes, as well as the stars on the bottom right of the card. Hmm, maybe it's just me. ANYWAY ... as soon as I saw these cute guys, I knew that I was gonna make a side step card. Guess who taught me how to make this card? The one and only Jenny, of Sister Stamps! This was years ago, but she came over to my house one weekend and she did a make and take for me and some of my friends. Remember that Jenny? That was a lot of fun, huh? ANYWAY ... geez, lots of rambling today ... here's my card:

I added a strip of blue paper between the front and back panels so that the card wouldn't fall flat.

And, I actually used an old Fiskars border punch to make the waves that the dolphin is jumping from. Can you see it?

I had so much fun making this card and watching the scene come together. I think this is my favorite project from this Release. Now, be sure to head on over to the rest of the DT blogs and check out their creations, ok?
