May all your Fishes Come True

Happy 4th everyone! Jen here from Caffeinated Papercuts with a silly but oh-so-adorable card about attaining goals, wishes coming true, hard work and perseverance...and a penguin.

Just look how happy he is with his yummy pile of fishies! And the fishy swimming away is happy he didn't get nabbed...LOL

Lots of fussy cutting again, but with such adorable results. I stamped out all the critters in Memento Black ink as my Spectrum Noir markers were at the ready. Colored everyone in and trimmed them out leaving a very slight white border. The iceberg was fun - a little gray for shading, then I covered the top in Glossy Accents and added the Distress Glitter. Instant snow! Once that was on I added more Glossy Accents to the side and let it dry for a million years. What can I say, I'm heavy-handed with the stuff. Worth it to get one heck of an ice flow!

Can you see? It really adds something to the card, and that glitter is stuck hard. Assembly was then pretty easy.
  • Gray card base, A2, top-folding
  • patterned paper die cut with the decorative edge, then fun foam added behind the panel for lift
  • (2) die cut tags, one with Phineas swirls for a little somethin-somethin', glued together, hole punched and ribbon & twine added, then foam tape to the panel
  • ice flow adhered flat, then penguin and fishies added with a little foam tape
So cute! You could even add a bow around the caught fish and call them a holiday present for our Christmas by the Sea challenge
