It’s time for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop! The theme this month is “For the Boys/Men” and we can interpret this any way that we’d like. I know you will see a lot of fun creations from my team members in the Hop today! Let’s go!
I used the Gone Fishing Bundle and the Let’s Go Fishing 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to create my card for today.
I went with an easel card fold for my card. I started by stamping a fishing bobber and lure onto white cardstock using Pebbled Path ink. The fill was stamped onto the bobber using Real Red ink and I colored the fishing lure feather using Wild Wheat and Boho Blue Stampin’ Blends. The coordinating dies from the Gone Fishing Dies set were used to cut out the images. I also die cut two fish from the Let’s Go Fishing Designer Series Paper, along with an additional fish in white cardstock. One of the Designer Series Paper fish was adhered to the plain white cut out…this fish will be used for the “stop” to hold up the easel portion of the card.
The 2″ Circle Punch was used to cut out a circle in Wild Wheat cardstock and I stamped the “Happy Father’s Day” sentiment onto the circle using Mossy Meadow ink. I used a Blending Brush to lightly blend Mossy Meadow ink around the edges of the circle. I also blended Mossy Meadow around the edges of a plaid print from the Let’s Go Fishing Designer Series Paper pack. The Designer Series Paper panel was then adhered to a mat in Wild Wheat. This unit was then adhered to the bottom portion of the card front between the bottom edge and the 2-1/8″ score line.
The sentiment label was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I added one of the die cut fish towards the bottom of the label. I used several glue dots to adhere a short piece of gray Baker’s Twine vertically to the left side of the card front. The bobber was adhered at the top of the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the lure was adhered at the bottom of the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the inside panel, I adhered a 1-1/2″ strip across the bottom of the panel using the fish pattern from the Let’s Go Fishing Designer Series Paper pack. I lightly blended Mossy Meadow ink across the top of the panel then third-generation stamped several fish across the upper part of the panel. The panel was adhered to the inside of the card. The die cut fish was adhered to the designer series paper strip at the bottom of this panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I lightly blended Mossy Meadow ink across the bottom front of the envelope and third-generation stamped several more fish. I added a coordinating piece of designer series paper to the envelope flap and trimmed away the excess paper from the flap. Several Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to the card front to finish up the card.
