i-Crafter - Koi Pillow Box

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Today I am sharing this caring card featuring the Koi Pillow Box die set from i-Crafter. This die set is perfect for making a gift card holder! This project is featured on the i-Crafter blog today too, so make sure to check it out here.

First, I die cut the sides of the fish out of ink blending cardstock and thick acetate. The die did not go all the way through the thick acetate but left a nice embossing effect. I trimmed the acetate piece just to the parts with the gills on both sides. These pieces will be adhered on the inside of the fish.

For the ink blending cardstock I used Distress inks and the ink smooshing technique to create an abstract mixture of the different shades of orange on the body of the fish. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Ripe Persimmon inks for this effect. I used Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade to ink blend the gills and the fins. The last step to create the fish was to add the twine and the eyes!  

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. This project is just so unique and fun! Check back here soon for more i-Crafter inspiration!
