Happy Birthday Fisherbear


I'm sharing this project over at My Craft Spot today and I'm posting it here on my blog too.  I created this fun card for a friend to give to her boyfriend.  She chose the adorable fisherbear image herself (and I like him too!).  He was purchased from Silhouette (#43388). After I cut, inked and assembled him, I added a bit of white gel pen to his nose and eyes.


I created the mat using Scrapping LIfe Cards metal dies and Fancy Edges metal dies. The little jagged edge is so fun for projects like this!  I also added some tabs behind the mat.  These were cut with Tiny Banners and Toppers metal dies and then topped with some fun enamel dots.  I embossed the back mat with a Crafts Too butterflies folder.  The top layer of the fish was embossed with my Cuttlebug.


The sweet little "Happy Birthday" is from the Banner Sentiments stamp set and it is stamped on the small cut from Ribbon Banners (Arched) metal dies set.


For added fun, I adhered my fisherbear to the card with an Action Wobble.  So fun!  (I always get such a kick out of Action Wobbles!)

Thanks for popping by to visit.  Have a great day!

This is so sweet Kate! I just made a fishing card for a friend of ours using Dr. Digi's Angling Andy...I love the image. I have trouble making cards for men...girly ones are so much easier!
Hugs, Renee

This card is so cute, Kate. You put so many details into it. The embossing on the fish really stood out to me, making it look like actual scales. Your friend must have been pleased.
