Fishing for Dad

Father's Day cards just aren't as easy to make as Mother's day!  I think it just has to do with the fact that most of us card makers are women, and we can completely get into the feminine side of card making, and so that makes it harder to get into our less frilly self!

Here is a great card for that Fishing Fanatic in the house...either for Dad or Grandpa!

The shaped card is from a file in a Great Outdoors Collection of diecut files, and can be purchased individually too....at the Paperthread's Store.

It's easy to put together....you cut and layer the pieces, and you can either cut the dashed lines, and then highlight with color or ink, or hand draw the lines, giving a stitching effect.

I also used a small fishing lure stamp on the inside of the card, you can see just a slight bit of it in the bottom right corner!

Hope you enjoy!!
