Fishbowl “I Miss You” Card

"I miss you" fish card

I love my Silhouette. With the 1000s of designs available, it’s great when you have a very specific idea for a shape, as I did in this case: a fishbowl with a fish.

I used the Silhouette to cut out the fishbowl and fish from white cardstock. I cut a second “water” piece out of a plastic-y material. I decided to use a single fish inside the bowl so it would fit an “I miss you” theme. I colored the water with blue ink and the fish in yellow and orange; I used a blue marker for the bubbles.

I colored a strip of white cardstock with a dark teal colored texture spray, then cut a fishtail in the end. I stamped the sentiment in teal on white cardstock. For the little decorative piece of paper, I die cut a small piece of white cardstock, then inked it with light blue-green ink. I adhered all the elements, adding a strip of blue ribbon.

Thanks for looking!
