I love this! It's so cute! I would like to know how you did the pop-up illusion, too. It looks so cool! I like how you changed the greeting to "Fishes"! Very clever! TFS!

I hope I can explain this well. I am not sure if there is a “real” name for this technique. I didn’t know what to call it.
On your white cardstock 3 ¾ x 5 Place post-it notes where you want your images to be. Stamp and sponge your background, the fuller coverage the better. Trace around the post-it notes with the fine tip of your black marker. (If you have over-lapped any of the post-it notes you want to trace only one post-it, remove it, then trace around the second. then place the post-it back in place.) Next take the brush tip of the grey marker and outline two connecting sides. Do the same two sides of each post-it. Remove post-its and stamp your images in the white squares.
I did the Get Well Fishes by omitting the W in Wishes with a marker. I then took the capital F on the For You stamp colored in only the F. you could use the Stamp-A-Majig to place it next to the ishes. I just did it free hand.
