Yes! School is back! ~Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon~

Yes! School is back!

 Hey guys! You ready for "back to school"? Well we go back a week from today! Whoa! To celebrate this (and yes, I say celebrate! LOL) I made a couple cards for the kids new teachers! I used files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon as today is my DT day at the blog
 At first I wasn't sure how I wanted to do this background, I knew that die cutting so many fish would be pretty time consuming so I decided to make my own background paper using the print and cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo. I chose my cut file, separated the layers and chose my colors for the fish and crab. Then printed. For some more interest I also printed a few extra fish and a few separate layers for the crab so that those could be popped. This would have been fun as a single layer card but the extra layers really help it pop!!!

 This was an easy card to make. The time consuming part was just moving the school of fish around to be spaced as I liked, after that it went together quickly. The crab did take a little time because I cut multiple layers of the eyes and teeth and put it together with different thicknesses of foam tape. The only embellishing I did was to add some white gel pen detailing. 

 Thanks for coming by today! Have a great one!
