I am joining in with the Art With Heart Team’s Colour Creations Blog Hop with this Gone Fishing Fun Fold card.

The Pecan Pie colour is a new addition to Stampin’ Ups!® Neutrals colour family and is our focus for today’s hop.

I have gone with a fun fold card that opens to reveal another card on the inside. The ‘Let’s Go Fishing’ patterned paper adds interest in the background, whilst a pop of blue ties the card together.

What You Need

  • Stamps/Bundles: Gone Fishing
  • Inks: Old Olive, Grey Granite
  • Paper: Misty Moonlight, Old Olive, Pecan Pie, Let’s Go Fishing patterned paper, Basic White card stock
  • Other: Nested Essentials dies, Twisted Rope 3D embossing folder, Bakers Twine

Gone Fishing Fun Fold Card Recipe

  1. Begin with a Pecan Pie card base (16 cm x 14.8 cm) and score at 10.5 cm to make a half fold card.
  2. Cut a piece of Pecan Pie (5 cm x 14.3 cm) and emboss with the Twisted Rope embossing folder.
  3. Cut a two pieces of Let’s Go Fishing patterned paper (5 cm x 14.3 cm).
  4. Adhere the embossed Pecan Pie to the small front opening.
  5. Adhere the patterned paper to the back of this card opening and on the inside back of the card base.
  6. Cut a piece of Basic White 20 cm x 13.8 cm. Score in half.
  7. Cut two pieces of Basic White 11.3 cm x 7.5 cm and two pieces of Misty Moonlight 11.8 cm x 8 cm.
  8. From Old Olive card stock cut two different sizes from the Nested Essential label dies.
  9. Stamp the Happy Father’s Day sentiment with Grey Granite on the Basic White card base, ensuring it opens from the right (opposite to normal).
  10. On one piece of Basic White card stock stamp four fly images in Grey Granite and splatter Grey Granite ink over the card stock. Put aside to dry.
  11. On the other piece of Basic White card stock stamp a fish image. Adhere both stamped Basic White card stock to the Misty Moonlight card stock
  12. On the Old Olive labels stamp the sentiments.
  13. Adhere the fish image layer to the Basic White card base, ensuring it opens from the right (opposite to normal). Adhere this card base to the inside back of the Pecan Pie card base. Complete the inner card by adhering the smaller Old Olive label, ensuring it doesn’t go past the Misty Moonlight layer.
  14. Line up the fly stamped layer with the fish stamped layer and adhere to the front card opening.
  15. Tussle a 30 cm length of Bakers Twine and adhere to the back of the larger Old Olive label, then adhere to the card front.

  1. What a brilliant design and products used for this fishing crd, Amie. That Cane Weave embossed panel is the perfect texture for a fishing basket. I love the pop of blue, so appropriate for water and fishing!

  2. I love the combination of colours you’ve used on this great masculine card, Amie. The Twisted Rope 3D embossing folder provides awesome detail – great choice! I love Pecan Pie, and how you’ve showcased it.

  3. Such an interesting card Amie, with all those folds, and places for stamping, paper etc. I like those new labels for the big statement they make.

  4. Wow Amie what a great choice of fancy fold for your card. Looks fabulous and a great way to feature the papers. As everyone has said the Cane embossing folder was the perfect choice too.

  5. A great fishing card Amie. I love your fancy fold – it’s something different and suits the Let’s Go Fishing DSP. I haven’t seen the Twisted Rope embossing folder in use – it goes well with Pecan Pie. xxx

  6. Oh I love your design Amie. It is like you have the flies and hooks on the front then you open up the card and you have caught the fish. Love all the layers and the Twisted rope embossing folder is great too the where you have positioned the different sentiments! Great Card!
