Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a quick and easy card wrapping up my week of Let’s Go Fishing Suite! Aside from Father’s Day, there are a couple of other sentiments in the Gone Fishing stamp set, which is what I used for this card, along with a very easy layout. Rather than using just one design of designer series paper for the card front, I used two designs that I cut into 1” strips! This is such a great way to show both sides of designer series paper and just add your favorite sentiment with some embellishments!
For the card front base layer, I used these two double-sided designs from the Let’s Go Fishing DSP, which I cut each one first at 4” x 6”, cut a ¾” strip along the 6” side to be used for the inside of the card, and then cut the 4” x 5 ¼” pieces into four 1” x 5 ¼” strips:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Cut two 5 ¼” strip of the Wild Wheat Textured Ribbon.
2. Stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, use the second from the smallest layering Countryside Corners Dies to die-cut out, and use the water-like accent stamp to stamp over the sentiment (going down the cardstock) in Boho Blue ink, stamping off once first.
3. Use the third from the smallest layering Countryside Corners Die to die-cut from Mossy Meadow cardstock, this will be layered under the above die-cut sentiment piece.
4. You will need one of each size of the 2023 -2025 In Color Dots in Pebble Path, not pictured.
I used a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” with liquid glue to adhere the 1” x 5 ¼” strips of DSP to, adhered the layered sentiment die-cut piece together, adhered the two pieces of Wild Wheat Textured Ribbon to the back of the die-cut sentiment piece, and then adhered this piece to the middle of the DSP strips base layer piece. This completed piece is adhered to a Crumb Cake cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”, and then placed the Pebbled Path Color Dots as shown:
For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink, and adhere the ¾” x 4” strips of DSP along the bottom:
For the coordinating Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I first inked the lure stamp in Wild Wheat ink and then used a Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker to color the other half to stamp on the envelope as shown:
How easy was this card to make? This really is a great way to use both sides of your designer series paper, letting it do the work for you! Since I used two pieces of DSP, my second card was made the same, however, I just changed the inside sentiment to “congrats”. I may try this again next week using 6” x 6” DSP to see how that works out!
