Swimming with the Fishes
by Anne Thompson

This month's blog challenge is "Waving" Hello--water-themed cards.  For today's very dimensional shades of aqua card I've got lots of fishes swimming among the waves.


I started with three shades of aqua papers from the FRESH AQUA COLLECTION cardstock pad SP1004.


I die cut all of the fishes first from a turquoise paper.  Then using another piece of the turquoise paper in a lighter shade and the  OCEAN FISH 3-D EMBOSSING FOLDER EF1031 I made embossed fish and cut them out using the corresponding dies.  For this card I decided to use only the embossed fish and set the other ones aside for another project.

Next I chose n even lighter shade of aqua paper and the CURLING WAVES 3-D EMBOSSING FOLED EF1032 to emboss the waves and then cut them out with the corresponding dies.

I covered the front of a top-fold white notecard with a darker aqua paper.  I added the waves, glueing some on flat and popping up some with dimensional foam dots.  Then I tucked in the fish, some glued on flat and some added with dimensional foam dots.  I had one extra fish which I added to the inside of the notecard.


Think this card will go with an ocean-themed gift for a birthday in August and I'll add an appropriate sentiment and note inside.  I love all of the dimension on this card!

Have you created a card for this month's challenge?  We love to see what you make! For more inspiration, be sure to check out the 2022 June Island Vacation supplies and idea book here.

Happy Crafting!
