Fishing

Always searching for good manly stamps, I got this fishing creel stamp with lures and religious sentiments from ODBD.   I kept the design simple this time and didn't color.  Next time, I think I'll attempt coloring the image to add some flair! 


I used the Sizzix/Tim Holtz burlap embossing folder to mimic the basket weave.  I struggled with where I could place a sentiment on this card; the ones that came in the set were rather large to use once I'd cut the main image out.  I could have stamped them inside, but I prefer to leave the inside of cards blank for our heroes.  Plus, this card could be sent for any occasion because I didn't put a certain sentiment inside.
