A2 size card – Measurements – Largest black border - 2 15/16 x 3 13/16”, rust partial panel – 1 15/16 x 3 3/8”, image panel – 2 3/8 x 3 1/16”
I learned a very good lesson while deciding on embellishments for this card…don’t asked your husband what he thinks! The brads were on and I wanted to know if it needed something black on the fish side, he said “what are those things, why do you always have to put those on a card?” (brads) I said “because it’s what we do, now look at this side.” He said, “You don’t need anything, it’s a man card and men just don’t care!” So I put nothing extra on the fish side but it’s too late to take the brads off!
-The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils.
-The edges are tool distressed with a paper perforator.
-Ink distressing is done on the designer paper and rust panel – after tool distressing.
-The fish are stickers which I staggered and cut the tail fin off of two which is what you see on the opposite end.
-For the envelope I masked off the all but 1 ½” on the side and stamped the grid image then added some stickers the same way I did on the card.
-The inside has a white panel with just a sticker.
-THE STICKERS ARE NOT THIS BRIGHT IN REAL LIFE!
-Any imperfections will not matter…it’s a man card!
