I think this card qualifies as a Simple Saturday card since it uses only one colour of ink and has only two stamped images.
To add a bit more texture to the card, I stamped the fish from the By the Tide stamp set onto a Canvas Creations sheet. To get a good impression on the canvas, I decided to use a really well inked up stamp pad in a darker colour, Island Indigo. The two sides of the canvas sheet have slightly different textures. As one side is smoother than the other, I stamped on both sides to start and decided I liked the look of the smoother side better.
After stamping the canvas, I cut it out with one of the Window Frames Collection Framelit dies. I found the fit was better with the rounded part of the die on top. Then I created a slightly larger piece from Island Indigo card stock.
I stamped "Happy Birthday" on the bottom of a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and then added a notched strip of paper in the same colours from the Paper Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack #129312. This stack of paper sized 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" is perfect for card making. For $8.50, you get 48 sheets of paper – 4 each of 12 doubled sided designers for a total of 24 patterns. I use these sheets alot.
To finish the card, I assembled the pieces using Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the fish piece to the card.
Ink: Island Indigo (126986)
Big Shot: Window Frames Collection Framelits (129021)
I stamped onto a Canvas Creation sheet with Island Indigo ink and cut the image out with a Window Frames Collection Framelit die. I intentionally made sure that the die did not cut cleanly so the canvas had a slightly frayed look.
