Good morning from snowy Long Island. We had about 2 inches of snow here last night, which is not a lot but still too much for me. It’s so cold that it looked like it was snowing glitter. I think it will probably be here for a little while because it’s not supposed to get warmer until Wednesday. Just another side effect of the winter!
Today I have a card for you that is a somewhat of a CASE from one that I did a few weeks ago. A friend of mine at work needed a birthday card for a girlfriend of hers. She said that she liked the fish from By the Tide because this girls husband and my friends husband fish together. I was a little unsure at first but here it is. The base of the card is Soft Suede Card Stock. The background is a piece of Pink Pirouette that is stamped with the Netting Background Stamp inked in Pink Pirouette. I stamped the coral and the poem in Rose Red on Whisper White. The coral piece I cut out with the 3 1/2″ Bigz Circle Die and the poem is backed by a piece of Rose Red and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the fish I stamped him in Soft Suede and cut him out with my Paper Snips. The greeting is from the Wishes Your Way Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede and punched out with the Word Window Punch. I backed it with a piece of Rose Red that I cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. The fish and the greeting are also mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I actually like the and my friend thought it was perfect. I think it’s about as feminine as you can get with the By the Tide set! Thank you for stopping by today and I hope that you have a crafty day! 🙂
