Give a Man a Fish

Currie really did a great job on this one, like usual, but this one I saved to post closer to Father's Day.

She put so much interest in this card. The brads in the corner symbolize bubbles, at least to me they do. The inside is just as interesting when you open the card PLUS there is an extra bonus saying in a pocket that is sewn on the back. There is so much to this card I had to give you a few pictures of it.

Currie said she loved pairing these stamps.  She stamped on white and blue cardstock. Cut out man and shark from white, just the water is left on the blue.  She colored with Copic markers and used an edge scrapper, various brands of eyelets, juste for fishing line, blue ink pad ofr distressed water and paper crimper from Fiskers and rounded the corners with a punch.

On the inside she stamped tahe images and colored all with Copic markers, even the water.  I "broke" the fishing pole by masking off and stamping it twice.  The beer can is actually the vitamin C bottle stamp.
She sewed a pocket on the back for saying and hooked it with more jute.  If you look at the first picture you can see it peeking up from the back.
The saying in the pocket it attached to the card.
I hope you enjoyed Currie's card, we do here at the Crackerbox Palace and maybe you got some Father's Day ideas. Thanks for looking.
