Punch 304

Fish Scales

It's Wendy and I'm back with a fun card I made with Kreaxions punch #304. I had a few of the scrap pieces left after creating my last project laying around. They were from the piece of cardstock closed to the punch center when you punch your border. The more I started moving them around on my desk the more I realized they looked like fish scales! So I decided to create a fish card for my youngest son who happens to be quite the fishing fanatic. 

Fish card

To begin with punch approximately 5 borders at 5 inches long. Be sure to line the punch up next to the previous punched area to get a nice edge. Once you have all your pieces, you'll begin glueing  the border pieces together alternating the pointed tops and colors. 

I sketched out a fish but you could find a pattern online. Using your fish sketch as a pattern, lay it over the punched pieces and cut out the fish. 

Scales

The head, fins and tail were cut out of solid cardstock. The eye and bubbles were all cut with the Kreaxions Circle Cutter
