You're a Great Catch Card

Hello everyone!  I'm just going to make a quick post this morning because I have to get ready to go shopping with my sister.  My mom's birthday is on Tuesday, so we need to go and find the perfect present!  :)  I made this card to give to my husband "just because".  I usually make girly cards with bright colors, but it was really fun making a masculine card!  :)  Hope you enjoy!

Papercraft Star- use the sketch
CAS-ual Fridays- monochromatic plus brown
Frosted Designs- ransom letters
Cricut 360- Native American (this theme makes me think of the outdoors)

A2 sized card
Potpourri Basket- fish cut at 1.9"
Simply Charmed- fishing pole cut at 2.63"
George and Basic Shapes- ovals cut at 2.42" x 3.76", 1.99" x 3.26"
Cuttlebug- forest branches
Kraft paper down the middle measures 2 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Stampin' Up scallop border punch
Letter stamps

Here's a picture of my hubby with a fish that he caught.  It's a bass, just like the Cricut cut I used...  :)

Have a great day!!!

I'm a HUGE fan of this card! My grandpa loves fishing, but I already used the fishing cut on Boys Will Be Boys (I think it was that cartridge). Yours just looks so much more realistic! Fantastic!

Hi Amy!

Sorry I'm a little late here, but you did a great guy card here! Good job with the colors and pulling the fish and line all together. Isn't it funny how all men make the same face when they hold up a fish they caught for a picture? lol! Just such a proud look! I guess they get the same feeling as we do when we finish a project huh?

Have a great day!
