Father's Day Card for Kieth
This fabulous Father's Day card was designed by my great crafty friend Tracy. She put together a kit for me so we could create them together. All the pieces were made from scratch.
The machanism was one she'd seen on youtube splitcoast site, and the rod, net and fish were inspired by some dollar store stickers she had.
The canoe was cut on the cricut and creates a little pocket for the card which is a coupon good for one.....whatever....for hubby. The little paddles were decorated with woodgrain drawn in with Stampin' Up markers. The little fish were cut using funfoam and cardstock and decorated with pen. The cardstock is covered with self adhesive drywall mesh to create a fun texture.
Tracy hand carved the fishing reel and used wire to create the loops that hold the fishing line. Two brads with thier prongs cut off make the reel and a couple of seed beads for the bobbers. A small wire hook finishes off the rod assembly. She also made the net using tulle, a wire loop and a carved skewer. She hand tied the mini flies that finish off the look.
The vest is held closed with a small magnet insertion and in each of the inside pockets is a cute and corny saying. I really love how this project came out! Tracy is amazing with the details...
