" Fishing" Card in a Box for Dad's birthday. Made with Best Catch and By the Dock
Cut Seaside Spray cardstock to 5 1/2" x 11". Score on long side 2 5/8", 5 1/4", 7 7/8", and 10 1/2". Score on 3".
Cut the score lines on the long side of the card, 2 1/2" length, to the fold. Snip off the last score line that is 2 1/2" x 1/2" wide.
Put Tear & Tape on the 3" x 1/2" tab and adhere to the opposite end to create a closed box.
Cut DSP. (I used the Night of Navy compass side from the Come Sail Away DSP.)
You need 3 pieces at 2 3/8" x 2 7/8", 3 pieces of 2 3/8" x 2 3/8", and one of matching Sea Spray CS at 2 3/8" X 5 3/8".
Cut two pieces of Soft Suede CS at 2 3/8" x 2 3/8" and two more pieces at 2 3/8" x 1 7/8". Emboss all the pieces in the same direction using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. These pieces are for the inside of the top flaps.
Adhere the Seaside Spray CS onto the backside of the box to keep that side stiff so it stands upright. Then adhere the DSP pieces to the outside flaps.
Cut three pieces of Seaside Spray CS at 3 5/8" x 1 1/12" and then score along the long side at 1/2" and 3 1/8". These scorelines will create the flaps that will be glued to the inside of the box.
Using the waves stamp and Seaside Spray ink pad, stamp waves onto the three inserts to prepare them as the background.
Before adhering the two inserts to the inside of the card, be sure you have stamped and cut the dock, boat, and fisherman. You'll put the fisherman on the first insert toward the front of the box. Then the boat will adhere to the second insert and the dockside to the third insert. I also included some seagrass and adhered it to the inside of the front of the box.
Stamp, color, and cut a fishing basket, hat, hook, and fish from the Best Catch stamp set. On Seaside Spray, stamp 'Happy Birthday" from the By The Dock stamp set and then used the 1 3.8" scallop circle punch. (I used Blends for the hook, hat, fisherman, and basket.
For the fish, I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen.) Adhere these colored items to the Soft Suede CS on the flaps.
