Greeting Card using Forever Friends retro collection

I thought that I would share this card that I made this afternoon for my mums colleague in work. He loves fishing and has just turned 65 so the Forever friends retro cd for men was a wonderful inspiration for me. This cd along with a sketch from Sketch and stash has enabled me to create this really cute card. I think that it turned out really well.
 This is the easel card top. I followed the Sketch and stash sketch for this card, The backing papers and the decoupage are bothe from the retro collection.
 here is a close up of the Decoupage from the FF retro collection. There are lots of layers but the outcome is so cute.

 This is the base of the easel card. I used the Cricut Hannah Montana Cartridge for the font and then cut a fish from Crafters Companion Male hobbies collection to complete the base.

I hope you like it.


  1. WOW can see why you was getting stressed with the decoupage lol Looks ace though.
