This card is for my brothers birthday who happens to be in the fall months. So I set out making a fall style card for him with also fish incorporated into the theme for him. He lives to fish so each year I have to find and incorporate a fish for him on some form to continue the interest of my homemade card for him.
I found a free download of this fish which I think....is a bass fish? Not sure, but most men fish for bass? I put one fish on the top of the card and one smaller one on the bottom. They seem to blend in quite a bit at a quick glance. So we'll see if he notices them immediately when he opens the card?
The stamp set is from Stampin' Up of course, called French Foliage. The large Maple leaf's are from a single stamp that I bought years ago at Micheal's Arts and Crafts. I used photo paper when I stamped the large leaf and used my dobbers to color the leafs. The shiny look to the leaves add a bit more of texture and pleasing look to the front. I colored the fish the same as I did to the large leafs.
I punched up the leafs with glue dots and the fish as well. I have a small leaf punch and placed a few colored leafs around the card. I was pleased with this card and hope he is as well?
I'll be back next week with another fall card. So I'm hoping you'll stop by again next week for another peek? See you then ladies. Enjoy your stamping!
