The Perfect Fishing Father’s Day Card

Looking to reel in some smiles with a fishing-themed card? We’ve got you covered, my artistic angler friend! Here are some fin-tastic tips to help you make a splash:

  • Dive into Design: Start by using fish-shaped cut-outs to create a dynamic focal point. Whether it’s a trout, a bass, or a marlin, these shapes will instantly make your card stand out in a sea of greetings!
    • The Let’s Go Fishing Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! has a number of fish itching to be cut-out and used on a card. Even better, use the Gone Fishing dies to save time!
  • Cast Some Charm: Incorporate fishing rod motifs to add an authentic touch. Imagine a delicate line twisting and turning, leading to a whimsical hook. It’ll instantly transport your recipient to the tranquil waters of a favourite fishing spot.
    • The Let’s Go Fishing Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! includes two beautiful sheets highlighting fishing rods.
  • Reel in Vibrant Colours: Make a splash with your colour palette! Opt for bright and vibrant hues that evoke the lively atmosphere of a sunny day on the lake. Think blues, greens, and yellows – they’ll make your card pop like a trophy catch!
    • You’ll love the colour combination of this card of Pecan Pie, Calypso Coral and Misty Moonlight!
  • Bait with a Personal Touch: Add a touch of personalization to your card. Consider including a sentiment that resonates with the recipient’s love for fishing.
    • Leave lots of space to write a personalised message, check out the large area left to write on this card!
  • Fin-ish with Flair: Don’t forget the finishing touches! Consider using a textured paper to mimic the feel of water or adding some glitter for that extra bit of sparkle. And of course, don’t forget to sign your masterpiece with your own creative flair!
    • The Silver Threaded Twine has been pulled gently apart to allow it to lie flat on the card and makes the silver thread really shimmer!
    • In the Gone Fishing dies is a nifty little die that not only embosses a rising fish ripple but cuts so that a little fish can pop up or the float looks like it is bobbing in the water!

So, my artistic angler, let your creativity swim freely! With fish-shaped cutouts, fishing rod motifs, vibrant colors, and a personal touch, your fishing-themed card will surely make waves and be treasured by its lucky recipient. Get ready to reel in the smiles!

  1. A delightful card for a fisher dad, Amie. I love the stretched twine across your card and the little fish popping his head above the water. The surprise and fun interest inside the card is wonderful. Love it. x

  2. Oh my goodness Amie, so many puns t’was hard not to laugh! Such a great Father’s Day card as well as being a fancy fold. Great choice of the twine. I hadn’t noticed that die you used for the fish popping out. I must have another look.

  3. First of all, I love your words and story telling, Amie. Your card is fantastic with the fish in the water and that plaited twine with a little sparkle adds amazing texture. The inside was a lovely surprise too!

  4. Such a clever card Amie with lots of interesting bits, the fish peeking above the wave to the cool rope. Love the fancy fold inside the card too.

  5. Love this Amie, you’ve made such good use of the papers. The card design is great too, a lovely card showing off this suite and Calypso Coral.
