Let's Go Fishing, Heartfelt Hexagon, Masculine Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a masculine birthday card to share with you.  And yes, I'm using the "Let's Go Fishing" Designer Series Paper" (DSP) again because I left it sitting out. I never put anything away right away.  Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Misty Moonlight card stock. After cutting on the short side it measured 4-1/4" x 11". This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. I cut off half of the front. Hindsight I should have only cut off about 1/4 or 1/3 of it but it is what it is. Save the piece you cut off, you will need it for a layer later.

After cutting my piece I took a piece of the DSP from the "Lets Go Fishing" 12" x 12" package and cut it at 4" x 2-1/2".  I taped that piece to the front of the card.

Next I took a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock and stamped the border/frame from the "Heartfelt Hexagon" set using Misty Moonlight ink. Then I stamped the words on the inside of that frame. I fussy cut around it. I tried not to cut on the inked line and some of the vanilla showed but that was okay. What I like to do there is take the belly of my marker and run it along the edge of the card stock and cover that and no one knows what a horrible job of cutting I did!

Then I punched out a Misty Moonlight hexagon using the "Heartfelt Hexagon" punch. I taped the stamped hexagon to the punched hexagon. I used a few Dimensionals on the left side of the hexagon and set it in place on the front of the card. 

For the inside of the card I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I though it looked too blah, that's why I said I should have cut 1/3 or 1/4 of the front off instead of 1/2.  So I fussy cut a little fish and set it in the bottom right corner using a couple small Dimensionals. And the card was done.

This was a very fun, quick and easy card to make. By scoring the front piece in half you can make it into a gift card holder. The instructions for that can be found by clicking here

Thank you SO much for stopping by to see today's masculine birthday card,
