What a Catch Valentine’s Day Card


I made this sweet little Valentine’s Day card using the stamp sets “Something’s Fishy”  and “Heart-itude” from The Angel Company.  I entered in the Red Hearts Challenge at Caardvarks.blogspot.com even though it only has one red heart.  I just love the way this card turned out.  I stamped the images on white cardstock  and colored them with colored pencils.  I added cystal Stickles to the fins and heart and mounted them with double stick tape to the aqua colored cardstock.  I adhered it to the card front with Pop Dots.

What makes this card unique is the unusual fold.  It is an 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 inch piece of cardstock.  I scored it at 2-1/2 inches from the top and then 1-3/4 inches from the bottom and folded them toward each other.  I adhered a 2-1/2 x 5-1/2 piece of patterned cardstock to the top section of the card.  This fold still makes a standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch card.

The inside sentiment is the cutest, if I do say so myself.  It would make a great card for your perfect “catch”, a boyfriend or husband that likes to fish, or your girlfriend that needs encouragement in the love department.  🙂  The possibilities are endless.  If you don’t want to take the time to make this yourself, you can purchase it in my Etsy store.
