Happy Father's Day Fishing Card

I made this card for my husband for Father's Day. I love the cute little boy and girl cuts. My husband said "are these our kids?" when he opened the card. I laughed so hard!! Then I told him it was cut from the Cricut. I love how amazed husbands are by the crafty stuff we do!

I cut the boy, girl and fish from A Child's Year Cricut cartridge. Then I went Tim Holtz ink crazy on the cuts to give them a more manly aged feel. The ink practically turned the paper into leather. I used a combo of Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. Love it!!

I cut the tag and the phrase from the Wild Card cart. I ran a bunch of cuts through different Cuttlebug folders to add more texture. The base of the card is actually a paper bag. I cut the top off so the tag could fit in and you can still read "Happy Father's Day". And of course I inked the heck out of the bag too. (My fingers were brown!!)
