Best Catch Fishing Jacket

Today we are creating a Fishing Jacket Card. The original idea is by Jacquii McLeay you can see her card here. I thought this would make a great card for anyone who’s into fishing. You could definitely change the colours to suit the recipient. Let’s get started. 

I have added lots of stamping and sponging - give it a try, it’s a great way to add more interest and detail to your card. 

You will need to cut your base down to 8” & score as follows....

Next is shaping the jacket....

Creat the collar with some quick measurements & scoring 

Does your base look like mine?

Let’s add some detail .... stamp with any ‘texture style’ image then add a dimensional to those collars

Next we need to cut the green strip into 4 squares. They should measure 1-1/2” each.
For added detail I cut the bottom corners, cut one then use that as a template for the others. 
I sponges all the edges in the same colour ink - Old Olive. 
I also drew some ‘stitches’with a marker, use a ruler to help you stay straight.
Then add some dimensionals leave the top open so you can add some stamped images.

Stamp and colour your images
Here’s a look again at how to arrange all the pieces, don’t forget those cute buttons! 
Use some strong adhesive to glue them down - Glue dots are excellent & very strong. 

Don’t forget the inside panel! You will need to trim the bottom corners.
I glued the top edge of the inside panels then trimmed with my scissors, then glued the rest down to the base.
