Card making ideas – threads and beads

card making ideas

Today I’ve decided to post a card making tutorial with photos as this card is a bit more difficult then those which I usually choose for this blog. It will take some time and efforts, but will surely be appreciated by your Dad, boyfriend or friend, who loves fishing.


  • Blue card stock
  • Need, orange threads, little beads
  • Small piece of orange paper
  • Glue, scissors, paper knife


Cut out 2 parts of the fish, using the template below.
