I just love LD's latest Something Fishy collection. I don't have it yet but I went searching through the files I do have and found this cute little fish in the Seven Seas graphic set. He looks like a Freddy, don't you think?
After I made this card, I changed some of the elements of the design, specifically the back shadow for little Freddy. I also added the hat so that I could pop it up next time. Here is the new design:
For the final card I could not resist giving Freddy some goggle eyes! He has such a happy personality that they fit him well.
I found some pop-up squares that are not quite as thick so I was able to layer both the blue background as well as Freddy himself. A little Glossy Accents on his hat and he is ready to go swimming off, hopefully to add some cheer in a little boy's day. I added fish riddles inside (This card is for Dylan, you can check out one card drive for him here: http://dustinpike.blogspot.com/2011/05/freebie-and-call-for-cards.html).
