More Splash!

It's almost Father's Day and at the Little Yellow Bicycle Blog, we are sharing cards made with the brand new Splash Collection!  It's easy to come up with some cards for your favorite guy using this collection.  There are great colors, prints and especially embellishments all ready to go!

For this card, I couldn't resist using the little crab shaped Clear Cut shape.   Each year, while our children were growing up, we would go to South Padre Island for vacation.  We made so many memories on these trips.  One of the most fun and funny things we did was to 'go crabbing' after dark.  Trust me, I never thought I would be outside at night with a flashlight on a beach searching for crabs!  Not to mention, crawling around in the sand trying to catch them so I could put them in a bucket for the kids.  All the giggles and squeals were worth every minute!  :)  Of course, we let them go afterwards.

The little flags are so cute and such a great way to add more detail and your sentiment.  I thought fun dad was perfect for this card.

For this card, I chose to use some of the fishes that are included in the embellishment packages.  I pulled out some of the darker colored masculine papers and put this one together.  The bottom chipboard fish is framed by one of the journaling tablet pieces.

Make stitching easy by just stitching through the points to make your shape.  This is a quick way to add some more detail without taking a long time.

Be sure to stop by the Little Yellow Bicycle to see Shanna's cards! 
 There are also lots of new projects there using this fun new Splash Collection
and more to come tomorrow!
