Punny Father's Day Card

As usual, I am working last-minute on things, and this is quick enough for you to copy like right now, lol.  My kids all learned to fish with my dad, so I made this 5x7 card for him for Father's Day.

My "water" was made using white core cardstock in Lagoon from Close To My Heart.  I used coordinating ink on the edges and swiped across the CS.  Then I embossed it using the Retro Circles embossing folder from Sizzix/Tim Holtz, and sanded the raised areas to show the white core.  I love the effect this has!  I cut the fish from scraps using the Create A Critter cartridge for the Cricut, and adhered it to the front using an Action Wobble.  (I know, you can't see it, but it looks really cute in person.)

I added a punny little sentiment on the inside:

This sentiment could be altered for a cute birthday card as well, especially for those fun Summer birthday parties involving pools or water.  I wrote the sentiment with a free font called Angelina and my Make The Cut software, using a black marker and my *die cutting machine.  I love how I can tell MTC exactly where to place the sentiment and just stick my card blank to the cutting mat, no worries.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I love my visitors and your comments; and you can always let me know if you need more info on a product or technique I used.

*MTC is no longer able to be sold to work with a Cricut machine, but there are several other die cutting machines on the market that DO work with the software.  I suggest visiting the MTC forums if you want to find out more about these machines.
