Boy Fishing Birthday Card

Another grandson celebrated his birthday this Monday. It is his eleventh.  He has many interests especially science. For pleasure he likes swimming and fishing.

The 6 X 6 card is a denim print from the DCWV Blue Jean stack. Using the Martha Stewart scoreboard I made double score lines all around the borders then sanded them so they would have a distressed look.

From the Cricut A Child’s Year cartridge using the Gypsy and the Cricut Expression I cut the boy fishing(4.17 inches) and sentiment(3.04 inches), as well as their shadows at 4.24 inches and 3.12 inches respectively. They were all cut from paper in my scrap stash.


To give the card a little pop of color I used strips of paper also from my scrap stash.

The envelope was made with paper from me & my Big idea airmail stack using the Martha Stewart scoreboard.

The fishing boy was adhered with popups behind the boy and the fishing hole. The fishing pole and fishing line, as well as everything else are adhered with Zig 2 Way. ATG was used for adhesion of the envelope.

Strips of paper were added to the inside of the card to make it not so plain.
