Fishy Birthday

     Yep, I have had a few days off - that means play time!!!  Of course my stamp room is a mess, so my first thoughts this morning were 'clean it up before you play'.  Normally that would mean put the Copics away, refile all the dies you have laying around, give myself some workable space......but I have several projects in the 'half finished' mode laying around, so today I decided 'cleaning up meant 'finish those cards'!
     Since before Christmas (yes, that long) I have had a piece of acetate sitting that I ran through my Cuttlebug to use as an overlay.....for whatever reason after I ran it through it ended up in a corner of my desk.  Then about two weeks ago I saw it and began to think of using it - I actually dug some old paper out from a scrapbook set a friend gave me.  Once again the card got laid to the side.  No more, today I finished it.  It is going to go into my Birthday stash, I'm thinking this will work for a guy, with a sentiment on the inside and a few waves and fish to finish it off.
     It was great fun putting this together - like like the look of the embossed acetate and will certainly be doing more of this in the future.

Materials:  Cuttlebug School of Fish EF, Cardstock, Spellbinders Circle Die, Stampin Up Bliss Blue Ink, Inkadinkado Stamp

Challenges:  Use it Tuesday #57 Masculine


  1. Sherry, I love the effect of embossing the acetate, it looks fantastic. How did you stick the acetate to the card - I can't see a trace of glue!


  2. Very cool technique. Lovely card. Thanks for playing with us at Use It Tuesday!

  3. Oh how cute is this!!! I love the embossed acetate!!! Gives real depth to the design and mimics the water theme beautifully! This will be a GREAT guy card!!! I never have enough of them in my stash!

    Thanks for the inspiration!!!
