Flourishes Friday Focus: What A Catch!

Good morning and happy Friday everyone!  Today is Flourishes Friday Focus on What A Catch and our Focus on the Designers! Please check out who the Focus is on this week HERE on the Flourishes blog!

On to my creation, I created a Father's Day gift card holder, for the men that are hard to buy for!
 I stamped What A Catch on Classic Ivory cardstock, with Versafine Black Onyx ink and fussy cut my image. I colored it in with Ice Blue, Buttercup, Beehive, Copper, Walnut, Flesh Tones 1 and Cool Neutrals Copic Collections. I found a DAD gift card file on the online Silhouette America store and cut the Shape out with my Silhouette Cameo Machine and I used Score Tape to adhere all of the layers together.
Inside it I stamped the fish image in the gift card pocket area and colored it in with the Ice Blue, Cool Neutrals, and Sweet Pea Copic Collections. I wanted to add a Bass Pro Shops Gift card inside but apparently we don't have any near by us :(
