During the month of June, one of the card making sites (Addicted to Card Making) used National Catfish Day as the monthly challenge ~ make a card with a FISH on it. What perfect timing since June was also my neighbor's birthday month and a fish card would be great for him also. So here is what I came up with ~ quick, easy and very masculine.
I had actually cut out this die from a friend's so that I could order it, but for your reference is it an Amy Design Die, It's a Man's World Series, Fishing Float and is available online at several locations. Personally I would check Bargain Outlet on Facebook as Michelle runs Amy Designs items every couple of weeks.
The oval tag that the fish is mounted on is an older Creative Memories sticker from one of the designer page packages (Escapes, maybe?) and I used aqua washi tape to 'tie' the already adhered tag and fish shapes. The sentiment is one that I use a lot simply because it is generic enough for just about any occasion. After stamping I easily was able to select a copic the same shade as the red background to color in the word CELEBRATE.
The finished piece is mounted on a standard white card base and tied with white twine.
Thanks for stopping by this morning - I hope you enjoyed my card.
Serving a Risen Savior, Pam
