Happy Father's Day!

Super simple card, but I love how the fish look!



I used the Zig Fine and Chisel Emboss pen, it allowed me to trace the lines and easily emboss! My current favorite tool!


Fish from Wild Card Cartridge
Kraft Cardstock
Gold and silver heat embossing
Happy Father's Day Stamp from Studio G
Paper from a Swap

  22. Great card!! I love how you did the embossing. I have been looking for an embossing pen like that for awhile but none of the craft stores around me carry them. maybe I'll have to get it online. Any way, Great job on the challenge and thanks for playing with us at Whimsical Wednesday. :)
