Acetate 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"

Turn treat cup upside down, pour some glass glitter in then about half to 3/4 fill with water, peel adhesive from the treat cup and place the acetate on top, squeeze to give a good seal, turn over and add some crystal effect to the join so it wont ever leak, leave to dry awhile.
Will look like this, i experimented with regular glitter with this one, gives more of a snow dome look.
Stamp the fish bowl on white cardstock with jet back ink punch out inside of bowl with the 1 3/4" punch. Colour in with the markers. Using a 2" punch or circle die cut out the bowl and stick this to the card front around the hole. Add the ribbon, DSP and the sentiment that you stamped the hand cut out. Line up the card front on the card base, add glue to the back of the fishies & place then back into their bowl, remove top layer. Insert the treat cup into the hole and glue down, then adhere card front to the card, tada! your now finished.

Fishin' Around Gel Card

Cute fishy gel card we made last Thursday night in class. I can't stop playing with it it feel so nice :)
The secret ingredient, hair gel squeezed into a small reclosable lock bag.It has tiny bubbles that look like air bubbles perfect for fishy themed cards.
Card measurements-5 3/4" x 8 1/4" scored @ 4 1/8" or 14.8cm x 21cm(half A4 folded in half)
Strip of pool party cardstock-5 3/4" x 1 5/8" embossed with chevron folder then adhere to card front.

Whisper white cardstock-2 1/2" x 2 3/4" Stamp with jet back ink using stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement, punch out inside of bowl with the 1 3/4" circle punch, line this up over the coral calypso cardstock trace with pencil then punch out. Adhere these two layers together then add the ruffle trim with double sided tape to the back.
Grab your reclosable bag, squeeze some hair gel in  but don't over fill it. Then remove any big air bubbles by gently squishing the gel around, seal.
Colour in the fish bowl with markers.Stamp sentiment with coral ink then using one of the dies from the chalk talk framelits set line it up so you get a cut out without using all the die ( or alternatively cut out then stamp on). Adhere this to the back of coral cardstock.
Lay the top layer on front of the card where you want it to go, next add glue to the back of the fish bowl then put back into its original hole. Remove the top layer so you are left with the fish. Turn the top layer over and add double sided tape around the hole, now its time to add the little bag filled with hair gel.Place dimensionals(pop dots) around the out side of gel bag on the cardstock, now adhere to card front, Tada!! your finished.
