Let's make a handmade card for a fisherman. My son, Bryan, has a birthday coming up, so it was a good chance for me to use my Best Catch Stamp Set and my Catch of the Day Dies. He's an outdoorsman through and through, so I think he'll like his card.
I did use one additional die from the Under the Sea Framelits dies. I really dig that net and it seemed to fit today's Fisherman Card.
Handmade Card for Fisherman
I looked at some pictures of Rainbow Trout. This is my best rendition of a rainbow trout. Hopefully, it meets with Bryan's approval. I colored this handsome dude with a handful of Watercolor pencils and my blender pen. I used Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Old Olive with a hint of Early Espresso.
I framed my scene with a Stitched Rectangle die. For my cattails, I cut them from Old Olive Card Stock, then the tops with my Soft Suede Stampin' blends.
With 6 sons and 9 grandsons, not to mention my Brother, Dad and Husband, I have lots of masculine occasions for handmade cards. The Best Catch stamp set and Catch of the Day dies will be a great addition to my craft room for when I need to make masculine cards. The outdoor theme is ruggedly appealing.
