Mr. Hubster loves to Fish…and so do many of the men in my extended family!

 

Ready for giving with it’s stamped to match envelope!

Stock and Measures:

Cardstock:

Whisper White-card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″

Teeny Tiny Wishes-greeting

 

Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads:

Tranquil Tide-front fish, inside sentiment

Calypso Coral-seahorse, 1 fish inside, envelope fish

Night of Navy-greeting, 1 inside fish

Soft Suede-inside anchor

Pear Pizzazz-sea grass, inside

 

I didn’t have to embellish or “Bling-Up”…it stands well enough on it’s own for

giving…it is going to a young man, and they aren’t the “Blingy” type!

I think I even surprised myself that this card was pretty much made

with no other tools, other than the Stampin’Up! Paper Trimmer!

Just like the old days of Card Making! Oh, don’t get me wrong…I love my tools!

Sometimes simplicity speaks volumes!

What do you think? Do you use tools all the time or do you keep it simple?

Let me know, I am curious too!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Simple joys to you ALL!
