Father's Day Cards

I used two images from the Graphics Fairy  (found in The Sea gallery) to make some Father's Day cards for this year.  Really didn't do much to them except mat them on colored card-stock and attach them to card fronts.  I also tied a few figure 8 knots to embellish them -- tutorial here.  For the sailing one I tore the edges of the picture/mats and used a diamond border punch (Fiskars) on the edge of the card.

On the fish card I popped up a few of the fish for added dimension. 
(No, the fish aren't colored properly --- brown an d green were just too boring for me so I "splashed" some color on them!)

These turned out so cute! My brother would love the fish card - he's a fishing addict. :-)
