Fisherman Vest Card
I need some masculine cards, and so I decided a fisherman vest card would be fun, I got the inspiration from a card Melissa Banbury created. Super easy to recreate! You know I had to use the new Best Catch Bundle, right? Yep, I did, I also used my Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. One of my staples dies, along with the Layering Circle, and Layering Square Framelit Dies.
Masculine Card – Fisherman Vest
Well dang if I somehow picked up a retired embossing folder, but at least I have given you an idea for a masculine card. I have the card details for you below. I used Sahara Sand Cardstock because it reminded me of a neutral color fisherman vest, however, you can make this any color you want. I plan on making a feminine looking fisherwoman vest too. I know lots of women friends who love to fish.
I used Soft Suede for my fishy in one of the pockets from the Catch of the Day Thinlits Dies, and I used some Champagne Foil Paper for the fish hook.
I used one of the punches from the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack to create these cut buttons. I punched them with the Champagne Foil, 3 for each button, then adhered them together for each button.
Thank you for visiting with me today, I hope I have inspired you to go create a masculine card! I have included the products I used on this card for you below. Now onto the instructions. You can download the Tutorial HERE, or check card details below.
Sahara Sand Cardstock: 5-1/2 X 8-1/2, scored at 6-3/8″ on each side (card base), 4 each at 1-1/4″ Square piece for the pockets, and 4 each, 1/4″ X 1-1/4″ for the pocket cuff.
Champagne Foil Sheets: 3″ X 3″ to punch buttons and fish Hook
Soft Suede” 2″ X 2″ for fish in the pocket
Whisper White Cardstock: 3-1/2″ X 4″ for the inside panel/t-shirt 🙂
Once you have the card base cut, and folded closed, using a pencil, measure and mark 3/4″ in along the bottom and along the side of the card. Once you have the two pencil marks, use your Paper Snips or place in your paper trimmer to cut and create the bottom vest, see photo below.
To make the V-Neck on the best, measure 1″ out on both sides from the top of the card, then measure 1-1/2″ down the front, mark both spots with your pencil. Now Cut with your Paper Snips or Paper Trimmer from point to point, shown in red below.
Cut 4 pockets at 1-1/2″ X 1-1/2″, then snip about a 1/4″ piece off both bottom corners.
Create the armholes using the Layering Ovals Framelits as shown in the photo. I used the same Layering Ovals Framelits Dies for the back of the vest.
I opened up the card to add some texture to the front of the vest with an embossing folder. Added some sponging around the best, including the pockets. Adhered my elements with adhesive, NO dimensionals used on this card, can you believe it? And you’re done.
