Handmade Card for Fisherman

handmade card for fishermen

Hello Friends,

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.

Best Catch Stampin' Up!

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.

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.

Mini Best Catch Tri-Fold Card

Best Catch Tri-Fold Card

Hello Friends,

It's confession time.  I fully intended to make a video for you this week on how to make this Mini Best Catch Tri-Fold Card, but honestly my hands look horrible.  We've been busy remodeling and painting.  So....I will do my best to explain how to make this adorable Best Catch card with pictures and words.  If you really would like to see a video on any part of this card in the future, please let me know in the comments and I will circle back and make a video.


Best Catch Stampin' Up!

The original card looked like this.  Which was still very cute, but my imagination got the best of me and I simply had to add the hat on my fish!


Best Catch Tri-Fold Card Tutorial

How to Make a Mini Best Catch Tri-Fold Card

I started with a 9" x 3" Basic Black Card Base.  Then I scored it at 3" and 6".  Then I folded it Mountain Valley style as shown.

The handsome black and white checked paper was FREE with Sale-a-bration!  Believe it or not,  it's the Botanical Butterfly designer paper!  Have I mentioned before that I love the black and white side of this paper?  I cut a 2-3/4" square of designer paper and adhered it to the front panel.

Both my hat and my basket were stamped with Early Espresso ink.  I just used different Card Stocks for my base (Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede).  The cattails, the basket, the hats and the fish were all cut with Catch of the Day framelit Dies and my Big Shot.  All stamps are from the coordinating Best Catch stamp set.

I stamped the middle "You're the Best Catch Ever!" sentiment with Whisper White Craft Ink, so that it would show up on my Black card stock.  It takes on sort of a chalkboard look.

Now for the fish, he is handsome isn't he?  I stamped my fish using Jet Black Stazon Ink on Shimmery White Card Stock, because fish are sorta glimmery and shimmery.  I quickly watercolored a small spot of Powder Pink on his belly and a small patch of Poppy Parade across his back.  Then, I finished watercoloring with Old Olive.  Hint:  Paint outside the lines.  Mr. fish looks better if he doesn't has white edge line once he is cut out.  

To give Mr. Fish a slippery, shimmery look I painted over him one last time with my Wink of Stella brush.

One final tip, I don't recommend using dimensionals if you plan to tuck your card in a Mini Envelope.  Because it's a Tri-Fold Card, it already has extra thickness.

So Hoppy Together Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Are you stuck?  Do you want to create, but just don't know where to start?  Choose a stamp set and a theme.  I choose the So Hoppy Together Sale-a-Bration stamp set (FREE) and a Birthday Theme.  After you have chosen your stamp set and theme let a Card Sketch and/or a Color Combination inspire you.  Scroll down to see the Card Sketch and Color Combination that inspired today's  Happy Frog Happy Birthday Card.


UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_b0ce

I decided to clear out some Christmas Designer Paper (Under the Mistletoe) that doesn't look like Christmas Paper.  Plaids are perfect year around.  Then, I colored my frog and dragonfly with Old Olive, Night of Navy and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends.  Oh how I love the results of coloring with Stampin' Blends!


UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_b0ce

The happy Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder just seem to naturally fit, so I embossed my card base for extra dimension and interest.
