When you use a rubber stamp to create your image, you can have lots of fun and color coordinate it any way you want! This card complements the *embossed gift boxes.* Here's a closer look...



These word bubbles are fun! They fit perfectly with the colored bubbles on the card's background paper, and the 'bubbles' on the coordinating ribbon on the embossed boxes. They give a sense of underwater air bubbles floating to the surface.

Plus, the bubble sentiments have a double meaning: for your special occasion and for fishing in general. You know about tall fishing tales, and this stamped image plays on that! You can color the fish with markers, but check out *this hilarious card* to see how to accomplish the shirt and pants.

To play with the idea of tall tales, I used two different tape measure stamps: the yellow one our fella is standing on, and the wide stripped one alongside the fish.
