From the Heart Stamps July Challenge

This card is is made with one of the darling images from the Inner Tube Birdbrain digital stamp set chosen as the stamp of the month at From the Heart Stamps in July. I've combined it with sentiments from the Fishing Birdbrain digital stamp set also by From the Heart Stamps to create this "punny" birthday card. I downloaded the digital stamp sets and then imported them to my Silhouette Design Studio where I used the offset feature to get a nice outline of the image with a white border around it. Then I added rectangular frames to my sentiments and did a print and cut of the elements. I used foam tape to pop up the image and sentiments, and my card was quickly assembled. I colored in the image, and the card is now ready to give to my fisherman friend for his upcoming birthday.
