Bass Fishing B'day Card

This is a "man" style card - don't you just love it!!!! I found the perfect paper when I was out at a local scrapbook store that worked so well for this theme card: from TCP Studio "Reel Me In Words". The perfect subtle colors. The Bass was cut using my SCAL (sure cuts a lot program) with my Cricut. The cut file is from my favorite: The file is called Cliff's Clubhouse Cards/Bass Gift card Holder. Yup, the original cut file was a gift card holder now reduced down to fir into a A2 size card. The Bass's mouth holds a Birthday message instead of the gift card. I love how the fish scales are cut in a scallop shape, then slightly pushed forward for that 3D affect. The fins also have that 3D effect, too since they are attached separately.

The waves are also cut using the SCAL (sure cuts a lot program) with my Cricut. The free cut file is also from The texture was made by using the Cuttlebug Swirl embossing folder.

The little greeting can be removed from the fishes mouth:

Here are the cut pieces for the card. The Bass is a svg cut file from called Cliff's Clubhouse cards Bass Gift Card Holder. The wave is a free SVG cut, too.

Stamp the inside message using Cloud 9 Birthday set and Chocolate Chip ink.

Your color combination of brown, blue and green is something which I done with my jewelries and quilting work, which I just started.
