Best Catch Birthday - Stampin' Up! Best Catch

  All the fishermen in my family would call it a good birthday if they got to go fishing and catch a fish like this!  Actually they would all call it a good birthday if they just went fishing even without catching anything!

  I'm enjoying creating with the Best Catch stamp set and the big fish stamp is fun to color then cut out.  Hard to see in the photo but the die cuts out the fins so the fish ends up a bit 3d which is a fun detail.

The card base is Pool Party topped with a layer of my favorite DSP, Wood Textures.  

The sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays is stamped on Whisper White in Old Olive ink and then it was run through the Big Shot with the Subtle embossing folder.  Both of the sentiment layers are distressed along the edges.

Next, I embossed a vellum circle with the Seaside embossing folder.  The fish is stamped and then colored with ink pads and blender pen.  I used Old Olive, Pool Party and a tiny bit Petal Pink.  The fish is cut out and popped on the vellum circle.

 I added a bit of woven trim along the bottom of the sentiment for some added texture.

 Now to decide which lucky fisherman will get this card for their birthday....

Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
