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.
Coral Calypso cardstock-4" x 3" embosssed with perfect polka dots
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.
