This Father’s Day Fishing Card looks like it took hours to make, but it really didn’t. This was one I entered into the fair and one First Place on. This could very easily be made into a masculine birthday card or any other type of card for a special man or boy in your life.
- 5.5″ x 8.5″ card stock, folded to make a top-fold card
- wood-patterned paper, 5.5″ x 4.5″
- sand paper or distressing tool
- treat cup
- scrap water-printed or blue paper
- 8 brads
- 2 small beads
- 1 large bead
- Oval punch
- word window punch
- sentiment stamp
- small alphabet stamp set (optional)
- scrap (2″) bakers twine or embroidery floss
- Sizzix circle framelits
- Die Cutting machine
- Scrap card stock
- Glue dots
- Using adhesive, adhere wood-printed paper to front of card stock base.
- Using sand paper or distressing tool, scuff up the edges and top of card, taking care not to tear the paper.
- Using the die cutting machine and the Sizzix circle framelits, cut a 3-3/8″ circle out of solid scrap paper.
- In the center of the circle cut above, cut a circle to fit the treat cup. To determine this, place the circle dies over the treat cup until the closet match is found.
- Adhere the open-backed treat cup to the porthole.
- Evenly space the brads around the porthole circle.
- Using the twine, string a small bead, large bead, and the second small bead to create a bobber. Tie a knot at the one end to hold the beads on. (Note, I used a head pin in my example, feel free to do this instead.)
- Adhere the free end of the twine to the back of the porthole/treat cup, ensuring the cut end does not hang out of the porthole trim.
- Cut a piece of the water or blue paper and adhere to the back of the porthole to cover the treat cup opening.
- Using glue dots, or another type of strong adhesive, adhere porthole to front center of card.
- Punch oval from scrap card stock.
- Stamp sentiment on scrap card stock.
- Using word window punch, punch out sentiment and adhere to front of oval.
- Adhere sentiment to right front of card.
- (Optional) On bottom left of the card, using alphabet stamps, stamp the “registration” numbers. In my example, I used DAD 1.
