Happy Father's Day Again!

This is the Father's Day card that I made for my dad and my father-in-law. They both enjoy fishing so I thought the card was appropriate for both of them. The idea for the card came from on of the blogs I follow. She used this same design to make a motorcycle card. My dad is a avid biker so that is why her card caught my attention. 

I started by stamping three fish on some Crumb Cake cardstock in Blue Bayou, Cajun Craze and Close to Cocoa. I then matted that piece with some Cajun Craze and Blue Bayou cardstock. I mounted it on some Fishing pattern paper that I picked up last week at my LSS. I then stamped "Happy Father's Day" from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes set, onto some Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out with the word window punch. I used the modern label punch to punch out some Soft Suede cardstock to mount my sentiment on. I then used some twine and two copper square brads to mount my sentiment at the bottom of the card. I distressed the edges of the papers with some Crumb Cake ink to give them a weathered, outdoor look. I finished the card off with three copper brads in the top right corner. 

On the inside of the card I used some Very Vanilla paper distressed with Crumb Cake ink. I then stamped "Happy Father's Day" from Stampendous with Close to Cocoa ink. I finished it off with two strips of stripped paper along the left side. I matted the Very Vanilla piece with some Cajun Craze cardstock to match the front of the card.
