1.       Score your card base (Marina Mist) at 4 ¼” and crisply fold with the bone folder.
2.      Using Tangerine Tango Classic Ink stamp the fish body, fan tail, and 2 fins.   I found that it was easier to stamp each image, then punch or hand cut out.   The fins need to be hand cut if you use the same design I did above.
3.      Using the Mat Pack and Paper Piercing Tool, poke a small hole in the fish body for the eye.   Put your brad in this hole and secure by opening the prongs on the back.
4.      Decide whether you want your design to be landscape of horizontal, then stamp on the blades of grass.   This is a large stamp, so only part will fit on the card from top to bottom.  You may need to stamp a 2nd time on the width to fill in the card.
5.      Adhere your fish body, fan tail, and fins to your card.
