Fishy Father’s Day Card
First Cut

Fishy Father’s Day Card

It’s Kalyn here with a new card project to share! Father’s Day is coming up in just a matter of weeks, so I thought it was time to get some ideas cooking. As soon as I saw the Fish Duo cut file, I was immediately inspired to create something for my dad. We had a koi fish pond growing up and these just reminded me of feeding the fish with my dad on warm summer evenings.

I first took my watercolor set and created some simply color washes on watercolor paper. Then I ran the paper strips through my CAMEO and put it on the “heavy cardstock” setting. This cut it out wonderfully. But a quick tip – be sure your cardstock is completely dry before putting it through your machine.

I finished off the card with some paint splatter and a stamped sentiment. It’s a super easy card, but if you wanted to make it even easier, you could use patterned paper that looks like watercolor instead of creating it yourself.

Happy making!
