YOU'RE QUITE A CATCH!





"YOU'RE QUITE A CATCH!" CARD

I thought I'd try this challenge! Using a fish for a Father's day card was the only requirement. Not bad, right?! So I headed upstairs thinking that I had a fish somewhere (be it cricut shape or stamp). My heart sank when I couldn't find one.... what to do? I did finally find one; a small one. It was in the Wild Card cartridge so at least I had a starting point!





This is what I used to make my "S fold" style card:
Cricut Wild Card (for the fish and the reeds)
scrap cardstock
Teal ink (MS)
Stickles (broken china and a brown cordouroy)
Distressed Ranger ink (vintage photo)
twine
metallic gel pen (stitching and sentiment)

I will be giving this card to my husband for Father's Day. Thanks for looking!

Challenges:
Bitten by the Bug 2 - Fish Cut
Fantabulous Cricut - Celebrate Dear Dad

  15. Hello! This is a super cute card! I just saw your comment on my blog regarding ATC's. They are Artists Trading Cards. Often you can make a bunch of the same card, (maybe showcasing a fun technique), and then trade them with your crafty friends! It is sorta like trading your fave sports cards, but with scrappy goodness instead!
