Fish Birthday Card

This card with its simple fish motif is just perfect for any youngster, boy or girl. The motif is combined with a couple of card making embellishments to complete the ocean look. The jute ribbon looks like a fisher’s net and a paper punch motif with fish add special touches to the design.

For this project you will need:

- jute ribbon in white or natural
- paper napkin with fish motif or other similar child’s motif (boat or duck, for example)
- paper punch with fish and or seahorse motifs
- scrap piece of white cardstock

1. Follow the instructions below for paper napkin applique with fusible web. Cut the motif of choice from the paper napkin and set aside for a moment.
2. Using the glue stick, glue fiber paper randomly on to the card. Use the picture for placement suggestion.
3. Cut a piece of the jute ribbon just shorter than the height of the card. Adhere the transparent double sided sticky foil on the backside of the jute ribbon and remove protective backing. Stick this piece on the left side of the card to resemble a fishing net.
