Today’s card developed from something I took out of the trash. Yes, it’s true. “School” was left-over from the letters I cut for a card I am posting on my blog tomorrow. But, I made use of the “waste,” having fun with an additional definition of the word, “school”…of fish.

School of Fish


The predominate piece of the card, “SCHOOL,” is what was left-over after cutting the letters for their intended purpose. It’s a 4 1/2″ X 1 1/4″ piece of Pretty Peacock Cardstock adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet.


I had no trouble finding my school of fish in the Whale Of A Time Designer Paper, and cut a square, 4″ X 4″. The seaweed on the right side is 1″ X 4″. Both were glued to a Pretty Peacock card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

The sentiment is from from the Whale Done Stamp Set, and perfect for my card, “hoping all your birthday fishes come true.” It was just the right size to fit within a Stitched So Sweetly Die. I stamped it in Pretty Peacock Ink on another piece of the Whale Of A Time Designer Paper, and attached it with Dimensionals.


Mr. Turtle didn’t want to be left out of the birthday card, so I cut him from the same paper.  He’s quite happy, swimming with the fish.


Come back tomorrow to see how I used the letters “S-C-H-O-O-L.”


I used Fusion’s sketch for today’s card.
