Best fishes

Hello, crafty peeps! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Your Scrapbook Place and I’m happy to share my GD inspiration project for the December with Christina Hor challenge using the Christina Hor ‘Coral Life’ image. This is my last guest design project for Your Scrapbook Place, and I’d like to thank Holley and the rest of the gang for having me along for the past several months! I’ve had a blast!


This is a fantastic image and as soon as I laid eyes on it, I knew what kind of card I wanted to create. One with an aperture to view the image through. :)


I cut a rectangle with rounded corners through the front of the card base and then a slightly larger one through the patterned paper, lined them up and trimmed the edges. I stamped the sentiment in the lower left corner.


I lined the colored image up with the aperture and affixed it to the inside of the card. I’m really tickled with how this turned out. So simple but yet packs a great punch!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
