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.
