Fathers Day Fishing

Happy Friday and extra long weekend to you! Hopefully you will be sure to thank a service men for serving our country and be thankful for those who have passed that served to keep us safe.
Today Flourishes is playing around with my favorite masculine set called What a Catch. Oh I do love this set as we have so many fishermen and hunters in our family. Of course my husband is none of these but hey, at least the others are covered. ha!   A fun and different card from me today as well. I created a window to the front of the card and the inside has all the goodies instead of the front.
 I die cut a Spellbinders classic oval out of the front designer paper from Theresa Collins called Memories and the base of my cardstock. Added two tabs with brads using our Perfectly Pierced Hourglass die. Stamped my fathers day sentiment and actually have that popped up over the bottom of the circle. So when the card is standing up it is all 3d looking if you know what I mean.   
On the inside I stamped the fish onto the base layer of classic white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped an extra fish out so I could cut him out and pop him up on the inside as well. Colored him with copic collections:

Once colored and added the extra popped up fish, the water needed some sparkle so added some stickles. Voila!   Did I entice you any? If you need a little more inspiration for this set, all you need to do is click HERE and travel over to the Flourishes Gallery.  Perfect inspiration for the guys in your life!
