Here is what I came up with:
The striped and textured card was pre-made. I added the brown paper bag
envelope. The large mouth bass is cut from Paper Source's 'Croma Lime' paper.
(I illustrated the bass first and then cut it out with needlepoint scissors).
I also used a needle to poke a hole near the bass' mouth. Then I threaded
some coordinating blue embroidery floss through the hole. This gave the fish that
Lastly, I put the fish away in the envelope's pocket. His mouth and the string
stick out just a little bit to let you know there is something inside. The floss also
acts as a pull to get the fish out!
I hope you enjoyed this simple Father's Day card. This would be great for any man's birthday in general. It can be customized with lots of different fish and papers too. Have fun with it!
