The Paper Studio Glasses, Staches & Ties paper pack has a couple of fish related patterned paper, which would make great cards for the fisherman in my family. This time I used the black and white fish hook patterned paper.
I die cut the paper with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and adhered it to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.
I stamped the image from Stampin’ Up Angler onto the same white cardstock with Hero Hues Black ink and die cut it using Spellbinders Wonky Shapes die and adhered it to the patterned paper with some Creative Hands Peel & Stick Foam Sheets.
I used a sentiment from My Favorite Thing Celebrate You stamp using only the top line of the sentiment with VersaMark ink by covering the bottom line with washi tape and then removing it before stamping onto some Gina K. Designs 100# Black Cardstock. I used Recollections Snow Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Marvy Embossing Tool. To ensure that the embossing powder only stuck to the VersaMark ink, I prepared the paper with my embossing buddy prior to stamping. I then cut the sentiment into a thin strip and applied it under the focal image with 3M 1/2″ foam Tape and the card was done.
I like to add some element of the card to the inside of the card, as well as the envelope as seen in the picture above.
