Best fishes

Hi everyone! Happy April Fools Day, lol! I get a big charge out of this day every year even though I rarely play jokes on anybody anymore! A new challenge is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog this morning and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #120 – Male Call! We are being sponsored this month by Bugaboo Digi Stamps so be sure to come over and play – we’d love to see your masculine project! I created a masculine birthday card for an avid fisherman somewhere using the Boy Fishing  Digi Stamp. This image is so super adorable!


I dug into my stash of masculine 6×6 papers and created a background with two of them and layered the image on a third. I used graduating sizes of stitched rectangle dies and stamped a ‘best wishes’ type sentiment which I also cut with a stitched rectangle die.


I decorated the inside with a couple leftover strips of cardstock and paper from the front, and stamped another sentiment.


And one more look… so cute! I just love these greens! And can you believe NO embellishments?!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up thick and regular Whisper White cardstock, Stampin’ Up Garden Green cardstock, Crafter’s Companion Just For Men Brights Collection 6×6 paper pad
Stamps: Bugaboo Boy Fishing digital image, Paper Pretties Fish Wishes stamp set, Stampin’ Up Birthday Blossoms stamp set

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and will link up a masculine project with us this month! We can’t wait to see what you create! Thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you again soon! ;)

Scrappy hugs,

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
