You're a Real Catch!


For today's card, I used both the graphics and the cut its sets from LD's new Hooked On You. You could use only the cut its to make the card but I prefer the look of the graphic image for the background. By the way, if you missed my post on the differences between the LD graphics and their Cut Its, you can find the article HERE.


To cover up the fish in the graphic, I made an offset, filled it with white and placed it over the graphic image (of the fish).

The 5.5" x 11" card base was printed and trimmed manually with my paper trimmer because it is too long to fit inside the print-and-cut zone. As the length of the card is the same as that of the paper that I was printing it on, I set the image to align to "Center to Page" so that after trimming the excess paper, the colored image will be in the correct position on the card base.

The fish (from the Cut Its) was cut out on different colored cardstock and put together by adhering the layers with glue and foam tape.

I also added a frame to the card front. It was print-and-cut and adhered onto the card base with foam tape.


Here's the finished card:

The finished card measures 5.5" x 5.5" when folded.

  1. Love your card Jin! I really like the look of the sketching on the frame! I'm always wondering if I should buy both the graphic and the cut set. I guess in this case it's worth it to get both.

  2. I love this. Thanks so much for sharing how you made this! I am always confused when it comes to graphics sets and what to do with them. Maybe I will give them a shot!
