I you have been following my blog for a while, you know that my husband and I love to fish, so it made sense to make a fishing card for him. The back ground paper is from recollections. The brown paper is scrap, the "wood" paper is a scrap piece of light tan paper that I ran through the embosser with a wood grain folder then inked the debossed side with crumb cake ink from Stampin' Up. The sentiment was printed off the computer. Now, the fish was cut with the Camp Out Cricut cartridge at 2.5". The paper is actually paint chips from Glidden. Every time I go to Lowes or Home Depot, I go to the paint department and chose some pain chips to use in my crafting. I inked the edges and cut outs with an olive green sharpie to bring out more of the green tint in the paper. The fishing rod is a dowel that is wrapped in twine. Nothing special about the twine, I got it in the automotive department at the dollar store.
I will also be entering this card into the challenge at Paper Playtime. The challenge is embossing.
Hope you like it.
