Fishing for a Boy’s Birthday Card

fishcard2

I’m at home with a sick little boy, so I thought I would take a break from my nursing duties and Spring cleaning (yes, I know it’s not yet Spring — wishful thinking) and share a cute little boy’s birthday card I recently made for one of my son’s friends. The birthday party was all about fishing, so I decided to follow suit and create a special card for the occasion.

I located an adorable little digital stamp from Pinterest, sized it down to fit my A2 card base and printed it on white cardstock. I then colored the image with my Spectrum Noire markers, which is always a relaxing way to spend a few grownup minutes. I matted the image and finished off the card using Hooked on Fishing paper from The Paper Loft’s 6×6 coordinating pads. I added some ribbon and twine along the side and, of course, I inked all the edges for some added interest. The sentiment on the inside said, “Hope your birthday is a whopper,” which I think was lost on the young audience, but I thought it was cute all the same.
