Mamma Whale

It’s another challenge at Lollipop Crafts and this week the challenge is to use embossing, either dry or wet. I made this card using Mamma Whale by Meljen’s Designs and the embossing can be found on the whales! I used a script dry embossing folder and embossed the image after I colored it.

Did you know? White chocolate is a confection based on sugar, milk, and fat (either cocoa butter or vegetable oils) without the cocoa solids. Some consider white chocolate not to even be chocolate, because of the lack of cocoa solids. The US FDA standard of identity of labeling for white chocolate states it must contain a minimum of 20% cocoa butter, a minimum of 14% of total milk solids, a minimum of 3.5% milkfat, and a maximum of 55% nutritive carbohydrate sweeteners.

I made this card using Dragon’s Little Friend by Meljen’s Designs. I thought it was so cute that I decided to make a simple card and draw the attention to the image.
