Video Tutorial on How To Create This "No Stamping Needed" Thank You Card

Almost all of my cards have some type of stamping on them.   Today I want to show you this beautiful ocean/water background technique used for a Thank You card.   This card has absolutely no stamping at it at all.   Having decorative printed paper that allowed me to fussy cut out the fish was a great alternative to stamping.   As stated in the video though, if you want to stamp and die cut there is a matching bundle called Artful Fins that has both the fish and the dies.

Here are the two cards I made.   The cards both used the same elements, just a little different in the fish placement and placement of the Candy Minis on each card. 

My video tutorial is a step by step instruction on how to make these cards.   I am showing you how to create the background (started out as Whip Cream Card Stock) and actually put the card together for you to see.
