Fish card

Very simple but I like it.  I stamped the inside with individual letters so it's a bit rough and off-centered, "Just keep swimming". 

If anyone knows a good way to keep the tape from showing through vellum, let me know.  I've tried actual vellum tapes with the same success as normal Tombow seen here.  I know you can strategically put bows and things on them but I just wanted this plain and clean.

Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Vellum: SU,  Light Blue: Michaels
Ink: Basic Black: SU,  Tuxedo Black: Momento
Stamps: On the Beach, Just Beachy: SU  Alphabet: Studio G
Misc: Copics, Joann's Glitter
