Birthday Fish shape card

For this card I used my gypsy to weld the fish together to make a shape card. The fish is from Paper Dolls for Everyday and it is cut at 6 inches real dial size. I cut 2 more layers to give dimension and detail. Inked all the edges and then used green stickles to give a little punch. The fishing pole is from the same cartridge cut at 11.5 inches wide. The 65 is from the Don Juan cartridge and the "Holy Mackerel" is the font from A Child's Year and welded together. I put some fishing line from the pole to the numbers so the dangle free. Used a large google eye on the fish. This is a large card and will not fit a standard envelope. Enjoy!

Dad Card

For this card I used:

Don Juan cartridge for the word Dad I welded it together with my gypsy and the height is 1.92 inches. The number sign is cut at height .61 inches and the 1 is cut at .92 inches.

Paper Dolls for Everyday Trophy cut at height 5.24 inches (not real dial size)

The pattern paper is from an old My Mine's Eye collection.

I tore the edges on the top paper on all four sides and on the bottom layer only two sides and used a border punch on one edge.

Kraft cardstock for the base of the card.

I rounded one corner and used a white gel pen to put stitch marks on one side and bottom.

The trophy is popped up one layer and the Dad is two layers. Enjoy!
