Free to Be... Fisherman - Masculine CAS

The only requirement for my card was to use a sketch. I elected to make it a masculine card after receiving this new fishermen die. I used the Freedom die because I think having the time to enjoy a few hours fishing and relaxing is representative of being free.

The sketch is from Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #367. The challenge includes an optional twist to use metallic accents. We'd love to have you play along with us. The challenge begins on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 and runs for two weeks.

After die cutting the image and the word (twice), a panel of cardstock and a panel of patterned paper were layered on the white card base. The sketch included a little "something-something" on the lower right of the image so I also die cut what looks like a gear. I added the metallic element by using silver cardstock for the banner, the three inlaid fish, the sentiment and the "something-something" item. (My husband thinks it looks like a naval mine.) The die cut image was adhered using foam tape for dimension. The silver word die cut was backed with a navy word die cut as a shadow. The inside was decorated with strips of cardstock and paper.
