Stampin' Up Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin Alternate Card IV - Fishy Christmas Wishes

Gosh, it's been so much fun playing with Stampin' Up's Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin kit.  And, I didn't use anything from my SU personal stash.  Here's the last of the alternate Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin cards that I designed:

The Mistletoe, turned up-side-down, in the kit reminded me of vegetation that you see in fish aquariums.  So, I had to make my own fish and aquarium.  Too funny how the mind works some times.

Again, I partially die cut the largest of SU's Deco Label Framelits Dies from an included Envelope and trimmed the bottom off for my aquarium.  I then die cut the white back of a card base using the second largest die for the water.  I adhered the white piece to the red piece with Mono Multi Purpose glue.  Then I adhered it to my card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I cut the tops off some of the Mistletoe and adhered them up-side-down with Stampin' Dimensionals for the vegetation.

I punched a small circle from the Envelope liner for the fish body.  I punched small circles for the fishes eyes, mouth and his Santa hat pom pom from Stampin' Up's Owl Builder Punch.  I fussy cut the hat out of the envelope and glued it all together to form the fish and Santa Hat.  Remember yesterday when I said you had to wait until today to see what I did with the tops of the Mistletoe.  Well...they became the fins for my fish.  Too funny!  Anyways, I adhered the fish in the aquarium using double Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped and die cut the sentiment on the bulb print card base and a piece of the Cherry Cobbler Envelope using Stampin' Up's Tags & Labels Framelits.  I adhered them together and to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I adhered 3 pearls from the kit for the fishes air bubbles.

SU's Crystal Effects was added to the fishes fins, eyes, mouth and Santa Hat for some shine.

I LOVE my Paper Pumpkins!!!
