The Cricut Lite Wildlife cartridge is a very useful one for those difficult to make masculine cards.
Here is another one that I have made featuring the swimming trout cut.
To make this card follow the instructions below.
*Cut background paper the correct size to fit the card you are making. I have used some more of the Chatterbox Baby Plaid paper that I used on the leaping trout card in the previous post.
*Take a piece of yellow card or paper and tear it into a roughly rectangular shape.Then ink the edges of both the backgound paper and the torn paper. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink- tea dye. I also used a sponge to distress the papers a little.Attach the yellow to the background paper.
*Cut the background layer for the two swimming trout from the Wildlife cartridge out of brown paper or card.
*Cut the upper layer from an orange bazzil or paper. Glue the upper layer to the bottom layer.
*With a brown coloured pencil colour dots in the correct places on the upper bodies of the fish to make the markings.
*Ink the edges and a bit of the outside edges of the trout with the distress ink.
*Using a black marker, colour the eye of the trout and draw a circle around it to make the rest of the eye. Use a yellow pencil or marker to colour the bit between the circle nad the eyeball.
*Use a fine liner pen to draw lines on the tails starting at the narrowest bit and going out then starting at the widest bit and going out on the fins
*Attach the fish to the yellow paper using pop dots or 3D tape
*Tie some string around the card
*Stamp the greeting using black ink on the bottom left hand of the card.
