Hello there everyone. Today I have a fun fishing themed card for Dad using some fun and ‘manly’ trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I found this great fishing design paper at Hobby Lobby (from the Paper Studio) and I grabbed it since my hubby is an avid fisherman. I fussy cut it a little so I could keep that great green lure centered near the bottom of the card.
I didn’t have a Father’s Day sentiment and I didn’t want to buy one since I knew it wouldn’t get a lot of use, so I made one using my PSE program. I used two fonts; Showcard Gothic and MV Boli. I think it came out pretty good seeing as I have no idea what I’m doing…..
I cut the sentiment out with an oval die and layered it on some green and red cardstock. I ran a piece of Champagne Netting around the upper portion of the card and placed the sentiment on top of it. I thought it looked a little bit like fishing net, right?
Here is the inside of the card. I created this also using the same fonts.
I wanted to add one more trim and I thought some fun knotting with Natural Jute String was the perfect accent. I did a little research on knots and this is called a Fisherman’s Knot. Very appropriate, no?
Knotted roping is a great accent for a masculine card. Do a little web search and you find instructions on a whole slew of different decorative knots.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope I gave you a little inspiration for incorporating some fun trims in your next masculine card.
