A Reel Great Fathers Day Card

Hi Everyone,

I’ve made a card for Fathers Day for my Dad, who is a bit of a keen fisherman.
First of all, I needed Fish! I had seen fishies made using the Blossom Petals Builder punch and matching stamp set and decided to have a go myself. I also used a Stampin’ Write marker for the lines on the fins instead of the leaf patterns available in the stamp set. 

This is what I came up with….
P1030737

Secondly, I cased an Idea I saw in the latest Australian Cardmaking Stamping and Papercraft magazine…Fishing line and the sentiment using REEL instead of REAL.
 I thought it a lovely play on words and decided to use it
– so that’s my child like hand writing on there.
(which is all good, 'coz I’m sure my Dad see’s me as a 3 year old still he he he).

P1030738

The DAD sentiment I wanted to make special though, so I used the Broadsheet Alphabet set and my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the letters. It's also been "rock and rolled" in both Pool Party & Night of Navy inks. I really like the combination of these two colours. Hope you like my fishy idea, I’m going to share it with…
