I've got an influx of male birthday's coming up so watch this space for some male cards (that I don't feel I do very well)
The first one is a birthday card for my father-in-law. He loves to go fishing every second chance he gets. So a fish/ water themed card was in order.
I've had this stamp set since it was released a few years ago but have never used it (blush).
I tore all the strips of 'blues' and then sponged the edges to give a 'water' feel. I then used vellum over the top so you could still the 'water' coming though.
Lucky my FIL doesn't read my blog so I can post pictures of his card before his birthday on Friday.
Thanks for Looking
Have Fun and Happy Stampin'
