Fishing for Happy Birthday

If you read my blog you probably know that I make cards on request for my co workers and friends.  For example I had a request for a ‘Made in Kentucky’ card for a friend who is leaving for Georgia.  So Mr. Order a Card the day before also known as Jim came into my cube this afternoon needing 2 cards by tomorrow.  Both birthday cards.  One for his daughter-in-law and one for his son.  Now fortunately I had a good selection of birthday cards in my stash at work so that covered the daughter-in-law.  You also know if you read my blog that I struggle with masculine cards.  I got my pointers from Jim (Mr. Order a Card the day before) for his son’s card – U of L and fishing.  And here is the Fishing for Happy Birthday.

Fishing for Happy Birthday Card Recipe

Using Cricut Design Space I found the fishing guy and created the Happy Birthday sentiment.  I used the text and weld functions.  I will put together a quick video going over how to do this.  Once the images were cut out, I decided i wanted my boat to be floating in water.  I thought about making the water blue, but that deviated from my University of Louisville color theme.  Instead I used a wave die from My Favorite Things and die cut the red background to create a wave.  I strategically placed the boat behind the wave letting a little of the black background stay visable.  Now I normally leave the inside blank, but a fisherman wants fish so I obliged.  Lawn Fawn provided some cute fish stamps and I just left them in black and white.  There you go – guy card.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Tune in next time for another paper crafting project.  Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
