Punch Art Fishing Vest

So my nephew turned 8 this month and I needed to make him a Birthday Card. My nephew is a typical 8 year old and LOVES fishing, the squishier the better! I saw  the perfect card for him on Stampin Connection (a Demo only website)  done by Janis Pfost, so I case'd her card. Janis drew some elements on the card and I decided to do punch art instead of drawing some of the elements.

Here is Ethan's card:

The card was created with the following:
  • Cardstock: Sahara Sand,Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise
  • Ink: Soft Suede, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise
  • Stamp Sets: Open Sea (the anchor)
  • Tools: 1 in Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, 2 3/8 Scallop Punch, Big Shot, Buttons #5        Sizzlets
  • Embellishments: Whisper White Baker's Twine

I know that Ethan will just LOVE this card. To purchase any of these products please click here or click the shopping cart. Thanks for visiting.
