Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday and Happy Birthday to my sister in Heaven. I sure do miss her. A new challenge is live over at Stinkin’ Inkers this morning and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for our Die-lirious and Punchy challenge! We’d love to see your project featuring dies and/or punches! I created a fun birthday card featuring three little fish in a fish bowl. Super cute!
I used a Tonic ticket punch on the corners of the card base and background layers. I cut the fish bowl from clear acetate and then a layer of blue crinkle paper behind it for the water. I stamped and die cut several fish and placed them in the bowl, then stamped the sentiment in Jet Black StazOn ink. The sentiments used on the front are from Paper Smooches and Paper Pretties stamp sets.
I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the paper and cardstock used on the front, and then stamped the sentiment from the Paper Pretties stamp set.
One more look… so stinkin’ cute! Love how this turned out!
