Happy Birthday Fisherman

Today's card is for a coworker of my husband's birthday.  My husband works at a fishmonger/restaurant and the cowrker in question is a HUGE fisherman out on the lagoon.  I wanted to do a Mahi Mahi card (since they are very colorful and plentiful around these waters) but he catches mostly redfish n the lagoon so I went with that. I made a couple of medallions for the sentiment one of which I covered in embossing ink then silver embossing powder to get the look of takle.  I used metallic thread to look like the line and hook.  Lastly, I dry embossed the background with D'vine swirls folder from cuttlebug.

Get Well Soon

I had great plans for this card but I am still disappointed. Mainly because I ran out of craft tape and had to use a glue stick.  It bubbled the paper and in order to get it to lay flat, I flattened out the embossing :(.  Also, for those of you with a Silhouette, I often color in my shapes so I can tell them apart.  Of course it doesn't matter when you're just cutting out, but it does when you print and cut.  The paper was a much sunnier, paler yellow than this but it printed the yellow color that i didn't really select with any care because I wasn't planning on it printing. I figured I need to show my failures as well as my here it goes.

Happy Birthday

My sis-in-law's birthday is this week and i was trying to think of a good layout.  The embossing folder wasn't wide enough, so i just embossed some score lines on the sides to fill in.  The medallion is from Silhouette's free cut files.
