Guy's Fishing Vest Card


I have seen fishing vest cards on Pinterest and even made a few years ago that has been one of my most pinned cards. I wanted to share this card in a "For the Guys" class in my home and no longer had a fishing vest card shape, so I made my own template. The easiest way to make one of these cards is to get the card and all the pieces all cut up for you in a package from Raisin Boat. But it was not too hard to draw and cut my own template. I traced it on kraft paper and white for the inside piece. I have three great fishing sets from Crackerbox Palace, Raisin Boat and Joy's Life, and I used them all. I sponged all the pockets and edges of the vest with brown distress ink. The vest closes with thread around two brads. This is what the inside looks like:
I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at time 4 scrap and Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge.
