Paper Fashions 'Gone Fishin'

Hello! Do you have any fishermen in your life? Well, living in Northwestern Wisconsin I certainly do! So today I have a masculine birthday card to show you that uses the Paper Fashions Digital Set 'Gone Fishin'. Paper Fashions also has a great sentiment set that you can buy separately or as a bundle with the fishing images.

To make my card, I used some outdoorsy paper that I bought at JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts. I added a panel of embossed chocolate paper using the Cuttlebug Branches Folder. The 'mesh' you see is actually twill tape unraveled. I picked that tip up from Laurie Schmidlin's Blog. As I was making my card I thought "I wish I had something that looked like a fishing net to use as an embellishment'; and then I remembered Debbie had accidentally discovered that if you pull on a thread of twill tape, the whole thing unravels (yet miraculously stays together) to look like this:

Isn't that amazing? The log house embellie is actually a button from JoAn's. And here is the inside of the card using one of Paper Fashions 'Gone Fishin Sentiments':

Have a great day!
