Happy 59th Birthday to my Dad!

My dad's birthday was on May 10th, but we didn't get to celebrate until this weekend so I had made him this card which he loved!  He likes to fish and so this was perfect for him!

For this card, I used the Going Places cartridges and cut the card at 5".  Next I cut the 'fisherman' at 3" and then trimmed down the 'square' and rounded the corners.  I taped a piece of blue paper behind the "water' cutout to add some color.  Then I used the Create A Critter cartridge to cut the tiny fish at 1/2". I just stamped the sentiment with a MPS stamp and hand cut it out for the bottom of the card.  I added some silver eyelets (that you can barely see) then tied a bow from green bakers twine.

On the inside, I cut the same fish with layers at 2 1/2" and added some green paper.  I kept the 'water' cutout from the front and added it here to the inside, then finally I added some white gel pen accents.



  1. Oh I am sure he did love it.. great job.

  2. Great card! I love the splash of colour on the front - and the fabulous fish inside! What a super card for your dad!
