Folded fish bowl cards from my own printed papers and cheese packages

While I mostly used white card stock for the basic folded greeting cards yet I just found out how great it is to use my own printed papers, because they are white inside and beautifully patterned outside.
I use light card stock to print the letter size sheets. Then I fold them and run them doubled through my Big Shot die cutting machine. I once invested in a set of simple rectangle dies with a small embossed edge and I use them all the time.
You can align the folded card stock just before the die cut line. This is how you don’t cut the edge.

Then I used some clean plastic cheese packages to make “glass” layers for the fish bowls with different Tim Holtz dies.
The fishes are from my fishes collage sheets cut with the Silhouette Cameo. The bird is one of Stamper Anonymous Bird Crazy stamp.

Have fun!

It smells like fish…fishy underwater notecards

They just fit into the vacation and beach time: colorful underwater themed aquarium fishes.

I made these printable collage sheets and found my test prints on A3 coming out too big for embellishments. And I messed up the print and cut marks for the Silhouette Cameo to cut them with the machine.

But the fishes looked so cool, so I decided to cut them by hand with a little border and making note cards from it. I am not the worlds best stamper, but tried some things and it worked. I fixed leather and silk bands and ended up with a couple of pretty usable gift tags.

You can get the collage sheets here

Have fun!
