Today I wanted to share this shaped card I made...
I just love this little fish. :o)
I die-cut everything using my favourite Cricut cartridge, Create a Critter. To make the card base, I just die-cut two of the fishbowl shadows, scored a line a little below the top edge of one of them, and then adhered the two together. The scored line helps to make the card easy to open. It's difficult to see from the picture, but I applied Stickles to the white part of the fish to give him some extra pizazz. ;o) The sentiment is from a Fiskars stamp set called The Sweet Life.
This card made an appearance in Paper Crafts' new special issue, Card Design Handbook. I originally made this card to submit to Card Creations: Get Inspired. When it didn't get picked up, I just kept it on our desk because I like how cheerful it is. Now that the card has made its return home, it's right back on our desk where it was before. :o)
I wanted to say a BIG, HUGE thank you to those who bought supplies from me during the craft supply sale for Rolling Dog Farm! You helped me raise $376 for them [I rounded it up to $400 when I made the donation]. Every time I have a craft supply sale, it's a bit of a nail biter because I don't know if anyone will want to buy anything. I don't really 'network', so I don't have a wide reach by any means. It has meant a lot to me to have people actually want to buy things and send words of encouragement for this fundraising effort. Thank you! I know the folks at Rolling Dog Farm will put this money to very good use!
