Fisherman's Birthday

Hello Stampers! 
Today I have a Clean and (rather) Simple Masculine Birthday card to share with you. I've used the Jumping Fish (325L) and the Tiny Happy Birthday (1081A) sentiment.

I started by stamping and coloring the image with Copic Markers.  It was cut out using a decorative Nestie Die that fit the image tightly and then I sponged light blue ink along the top edge of the image to create the sky. 

The background panel was matted with green trim and I used an embossing folder to give it texture.  The image was adhered in the center and I added 3 Copper brads to the circles on the far left side.  I embellished the bottom of the image with some natural twine that was wrapped around twice and tied in a knot. Next, I created a tag using the Birthday sentiment as shown and it was adhered just under the twine knot.  The image panel was adhered onto a blue cardstock base that measures 4.45" x 5.5." 

Does Dad like to fish? Don't forget that a card like this could easily be turned into a Father's Day card by just changing up the sentiment. 

Thanks for visiting here today!
