Today I have a masculine card to share with you. I think the colors are what makes it masculine. Obviously it’s perfect for a fisherman. But the sentiment, taken as a pun, makes it great for anyone. The layers are cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (I LOVE them!) and lined up at a corner, instead of centered. I did that so I would have more space for the die cuts from the Catch of the Day Thinlits Dies, which I tucked in around the layers.

Can you tell how the fins on the large fish are curved up just a little bit? I just used my fingers to do that. I love how the die cuts the fin in the middle of the fish so you can curl it up separately from the body.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Early Espresso card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Best Catch stamp set:

  • creel, hook, hat, large fish, and small fish spots in black Memento ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS
  • creel in Crumb Cake ink into the front of a Very Vanilla envelope, bottom left
  • fisherman in Crumb Cake ink onto the envelope flap, and onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS that will be the top layer of the card
  • sentiment in Early Espresso ink next to the fisherman on the Very Vanilla CS scrap

Die cut using the Catch of the Day Thinlits:

  • creel, hook, hat, large fish, and small fish
  • 3 cattails from a scrap of Mossy Meadow CS

Die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits:

  • fisherman/sentiment
  • second layer from Early Espresso CS
  • third layer from Crumb Cake CS
  • fourth layer from Very Vanilla CS
  • fifth and largest layer from Soft Suede CS

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • hat and creel in Crumb Cake
  • hook in Pool Party
  • large fish in Soft Sea Foam

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • die cut layers glued together in order of size, lining them all up at the bottom right corner, and leaving some of the left sides and top with no adhesive.
  • bottom layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • die cut pieces (except for the large fish)  tucked into the spaces between the layers and glued in place
  • large fish adhered onto the left side of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Very Vanilla CS glued onto the inside of the card base
