I had a hard time with this project as I typically only scrapbook vacations and special events. I know, I really need to get working on family history, but there never seems to be enough time. I finally decided on a Father's Day card.
Items I used that are transparent, clear or glossy: mono-filament thread for the fishing line, clear clam-shell packaging for the label and Glossy Accents on a fish and "bobber" die-cut.
Items from CropChocolate: 12x12 Splash Collection Pack by Echo Park; 12x12 Specialty Paper Multi Pack by Slice; 12x12 Dark Blue/Light Blue Cardstock by Echo Park; ribbon from 12x12 Lush Brown Collection by My Mind's Eye; Viper Permanent Adhesive by Snake Tape
Other items used: QuicKutz fishing pole, fish and label dies; QuicKutz Squeeze; vellum; white cardstock greeting card; mono-filament thread, Glossy Accents; Xyron 150 Create-a-Sticker; clear clam-shell packaging; black gel pen
Here's the card I submitted:
Here's an attempt at giving you a better look at the mono-filament thread I used:
The Glossy Accents used on die-cuts:
And a better view of the label cut from clear clam-shell packaging, but it is almost impossible to see it.
I hope you enjoyed the project I shared (and submitted for Challenge #9). Comments are appreciated. Thanks for stopping by.
