Have a Whaley Good Time Whale card

Today's fun 5" x 5" card comes from two older cartridges:  Cricut Create A Critter for the whale and Going Places for the ocean.  What's handy about that ocean is that I was able to use the blue cut out pieces for this card below on Everyday Cricut today:
As you can see, I was feeling a bit nautical today in my "under the sea" animal choices. LOL!
I popped up the red square a bit to some dimension.
It's hard to find a good sentiment to go with a whale.  Enter the Close to My Heart "Under the Sea" stamp collection ($13.95). Take a look below:

The paper on this card is from the Close to My Heart Dotty for You paper pack - take a look below.  Remember, on the backs of the papers shown below are the dotted patterns in grey, yellow, orange, green, blue, tulip, etc.

  22. My favorite is the Pennants. I use them on cards and pages and these are so much easier to cut!!
    I can't believe there is a Wildcard 2. That's really cool!
    Thanks for keeping us up to date on cartridges and inspired to use them.
