Hello everyone :)
Today's project is for the brand new challenge over at Scrapbookaholic By Abby. The theme for the next couple weeks is an animal and the color orange. This is in honor of ASPCA's month against animal cruelty.
I'm not entirely sure if a fish really counts as an animal, but I thought this idea was so cute that I ran with it.
The little fish is from the Smiley Cards cartridge and is cut at 1.75 inches. Although you can't see it in the photo very well I embossed the yellow part of the fish with the Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug Folder. I also drew some lines on the fins, and a few details on the lips.
I created a window using the fish tank from Create a Critter at 3 inches. I used my Gypsy to make a rectangle that is 4 inches by 5.25 inches. I positioned the fish tank in the middle of that piece and cut it out.
I created a pocket with 2 sheets of acetate and I placed Martha Stewart's Turquoise colored glitter inside it. All I did to create the pocket was cut 2 sheets at 4 by 5.25 inches. I put Score Tape all around the edges, being really sure that all the corners were sealed and there were no gaps for the glitter to escape. I added some glitter in the middle before sticking the 2 sheets together.
I decided not to have the window show all the way through my card. So, I cut a white piece the same size as the other layers at 4 by 5.25. I attached my fish to the front of it. Then I attached the white layer to the card, and the blue layer with the glitter window inside it over the top.
The card is a standard 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2 - so there i a nice little border of the pink card base showing on the front.
