Wanna go fishing?

I'm sure that by now ya'll have seen the new chickies from DeNami's spring release. If you haven't, you seriously need to...ohh my gosh, it's cuteness overload!!

Here is one of the new little guys hanging out doing some fishing...thinking about Fathers Day for this card.
I was going for the look of a taped-up poloroid. Notice the "tape" I made that using white cardstock, blue ink and the teeny star stamp. After I cut the pieces to the approx size I wanted, I simply tore the ends using a tape dispenser to get that "tape edge" look. In person the little fishie really pops...I added Crystal Lacquer to make is shine like a little rainbow trout.

I'm thinking my Father-In-Law is really gonna love this little creation!

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!


  1. WHAT?!?! I mean, seriously...WHAT?!?! This is RIDICULOUSLY out of control cuteness! Someone call the cuteness police now! I LOVE how you made it look like a polaroid picture! You're so stinkin' smart!

  2. Eeeeeek! This card is too cute, Tina! My dad LOVES fishing (though he travels too much to be able to do it)- I'm thinking I need to make a card like this for Father's Day! Just a quick switch of the sentiment and you have made my life SO easy. :) Thanks, girlfriend!

  3. LOVE this card. It is too, too cute. I don't think I've seen the fishing chickie before. Where has he been? Where have I been? I love the faux tape too!
