Work less, Fish more!


Hey there friends, my fishing-loving Nephew had a birthday this week. I bought this cute Wplus9 stamp set "Fish More" and dies for him and all the other men in my life. I needed a set like this. Of course, I didn't use a lot of the stamps, just a few. The real star of this card is from Sandy Allnock's tutorial I found for this vest card. So super cute, have to make it again and again! 

I used SU crumb cake CS and buttons, some brads, Antique Linen distress ink, a corner rounder and an oval die. A SB circle die was used just to trace the armholes on the back. You'll see if you watch the tutorial. 

Some links to challenges are:

Moving along with the times Anything but a square card.
Seize the Birthday Tall and Skinny or anything goes My birthday sentiment is on the inside. It says Happy Birthday, lure the best
The Male Room -feature letters or numbers, I have letters in the sentiment.
Funky and Fab  -Masculine
Party Time Tuesday -Anything Goes
Shopping out Stash -Lost and Found, I found brads which I haven't used on a card in ages.

  1. I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.
