Seize the Birthday - Chevrons

I needed a card for my father-in-law and this paper and the current Seize the Birthday challenge were perfect.

I used a chevron punch to separate the layer, and then added a tag from the paper pad and popped it up with foam tape. I used a die cut for the fisherman and fussy cut the fish. I added a little twine and metallic embellishments.

Supplies: Natural white and brown card stock, Designer Paper – Kaiser Craft, Papertrey Ink – Birthday Wishes, twine and metallic embellishments and chevron punch.



  1. SO COOL, Sis,

    On so many levels. The fussy cutting makes this card almost like a small 3d scene. Faboo!

  3. Oh my...I love this card! So many of us have trouble creating masculine cards, but you've nailed it!
