A By the Tide Masculine Birthday

I found this fun card at Stamp and Scrap with Frenchie.  And no, I have not been camping out at her blog!  Though she does have a lot of wonderful posts there!!!

I love making masculine cards.  I just never seem to find or create enough of them.  And when I do find one that I REALLY like I just HAVE to make it!!!

I love how Frenchie used the Lullaby decorative paper for the water bubbles in the background of the fish.  And yes, I did have to fussy cut the fish.  I HATE cutting things out by hand.  Now that tells you how much I liked this card and wanted to recreate it. I did not want to make it a thinking of you card like Frenchie did so I opted to make a birthday card.  I used the Wetlands set for the words and the By the Tide set for the images.  

I colored the fish in using a blender pen and ink pads.  I just kept adding fun colors until I thought it was colorful enough.  I think it turned out well.  The fish was set in place using Dimensionals.

When I cut the bottom wave, I just cut both the card stock and the decorative paper at the same time and then I trimmed the tops of both to fit.  I find it easier that way than cutting one and trying to get the exact same curve so they fit together.  The first time I did it was because I was being lazy!!  LOL  Now I do it because it works!!!  Go figure!!!

You can go on over to Frenchie's blog and see how she made hers.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
