Homemade Card with Clear Rubber Stamp Fish

Here is another fun and simple card to make. We are using this format for a thank you card, but you can use it for any occasion. We used a clear rubber stamp to decorate this card from the Bigfoot & Pickle Face Fish series.

First cut out of card stock one 4" x 9-1/2". You should be able to get 2 cards out of one 8-1/2" x 11" paper. Remember to keep your scraps as you will use them eventually.

Score the card at 5-1/2". You can fold and use the card many ways depending on the design you want to end up with.

Cut one 4" x 4" and a coordinating strip of 2" x 4" [which I used from left over paper]. You can cut these strips to the size and look you want to achieve.

Decorate the card to your liking. Here I layered the 4" x 4" paper on my card and then placed the 2" x 4" strip on top of that. You do not need to use card stock as you may find a decorative paper you want to use that is not card stock.

I stamped from our Bigfoot & Pickle Face Creations line the clear rubber stamp fish from SKU#FSH05. I put a "Thank you for the gift" message on the card. We used our child safe/washable ink pad in green and colored the image with washable markers. On the outside of the fish we just dabbed it with the washable blue and pink ink pads. Remember, use your imagination and you will be amazed at what you will design.

Cut a 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" white square to place on the inside of the card for your message.

Happy stamping and have fun doing kids crafts with your children! Don't forget to visit our website or storefront to purchase our products.
