Good catch

I really struggle to make cards for the males in my life, I don't know what it is, (well for me, it's probably because you can't really glitter it to within an inch of it's life, and add lots of sparkly gems and pretty bows hehe!). I mean there are enough things out there in the world that men like to do, most sports, cars, diy, etc.,  but actually putting a card together is a struggle, which is why last week over two days, I printed out and put together nine (I don't do things by half  LOL!) Paper Creator kits all male themed and suitable for a variety of ages.
The kits are so easy to put together that you can spend a little time to make a lot of cards and now at least if a male card is needed I know I will have one, especially as my oldest daughter seems to think that I am her personal card shop and is always popping in for a last minute card, I don't think she knows what a proper card shop looks like, in her mind it is her mum's craft room LOL!

I will be showcasing the cards over the next couple of weeks, and today we have the first.

Good Catch 6x6 card kit - Paper Creator
Ribbon and charm - Meiflower
small piece of embroidery thread for the fishing line.

I used brown card instead of my usual white for the card base and although the kit is for a basic square card, I made a fold back card, I cut the background sheet into two and added a piece to each section of the fold back, I also printed the background out a second time and used it for the inside of the card. I decoupaged all the layers and added a piece of embroidery thread to the rod for the fishing line. The kit also comes with a matching envelope.
