The Neighborly Narwhal - without his tusk - becomes a friendly whale relaxing in the center of the Seawood Collage. Add some Swirling Stitches and a few gemstones just for fun. Hi - Jean Okimoto here - with a quick card designed to brighten someone's day.
I didn't even know what a Narwhal was until the April Release - I thought it was a Memory Box exclusive. Several of my friends at Impress - highly intelligent people - were also surprised that narwhals really do exist in nature. The real ones aren't nearly as cute as Memory Box's, they don't multi-task as whales either. Ours is quite special!
Paint watercolor paper with pale layers of aqua and green Peerless Watercolors. Cut them with a Stitched Oval Layer. Cut the green oval with Seawood Collage - it's a close fit, but I know you can do it.
Cut Neighborly Narwhal from black and dark gray cardstock. Attach the black piece behind the gray for dimension and a sliver of a shadow. Cut the lower section from white cardstock. Tape a scrap of black cardstock behind his eye. Attach him to the background.
Diecut a folded Pool Notecard with the Swirling Stitches - the swirls also appear inside the card for added texture.
Attach everything to a Pool Notecard and add turquoise gem stickers. Stamp your favorite Memory Box greeting, sign your name and send it off in a matching Pool Envelope. It's sure to elicit a smile!
If you haven't already been there this weekend - or even if you have - stop by both Impress stores during their annual Spring Sale. Enjoy a 20% discount on everything and take advantage of your chance to buy the Memory Box, Open Studio and Poppystamps items on your wishlist.
