It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fishing Shack – TLF038 for the image and Happy Birthday Script – FDG028 for the sentiment. I hope you have enjoyed all of the wonderful new stamps from our New Spring Release called “This and That” this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I know I have. This fishing shack is a wonderful image for all of those loved one’s in your life who love fishing and would be perfect for a Father’s Day card too!
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the fish cardstock from Photo-Play – Camp Happy Bear at 5.5″ x 1.25″ and Stampin’ UP! Wood Textures paper to 5.5″ x 3.25″. I wanted to keep both of these piece completely flat on the base so I ran both pieces through my Xyron Creative Station and adhered both pieces to the base card, starting with the fishing pattern. I die cut some dark chocolate cardstock to the size of 4.25″ x 3.25″ using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and popped it up onto the base using U-Line double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug again and this time, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers at the size of 4.25″ x 3″, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I stamped the main image onto this die cut and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers and then double-side tape was applied to the back of it. This was attached to the card over top of the larger rectangle. I fussy cut around the sentiment and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I applied it to the dark chocolate card stock and fussy cut around it again. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the bottom half of the sentiment and liquid glue to the top portion. This was then adhered to the bottom of the card. I added in 3 little fishes from Buttons Galore & More – Sprinkletz Fish Tank to complete the card.
