Best Fishes!


Hi everyone,

Welcome to day 4 of the Paper Pretties sneak peeks in readiness for the release of the new Paper Pretties stamps which are to be released tomorrow, Wednesday 14th September.

For last sneak peek before the stamps are released the Design Team are featuring Fish Wishes. What a fun stamp set this is. The  fish actually has some pretty swirls on it’s tail which I cut off as I was cutting it out.


As gold fish live is a fish bowl I decided to create a fish bowl shaped card today. The fish bowl was created using my Cricut and the Create A Critter cartridge. I used acetate to cut out the main fish bowl shape and I cut 4 of the blue pieces so I could adhere one on either side of the acetate to hide the tape.


Here is the inside of my card, I created it the same as the front, minus the fish and added one of the sentiments from the set instead. The tag you can see is actually on the outside of the card, but being my card is see through it can be seen when I turned my card inside out.
