Slimline Fishing and Camping Card

This slimline fishing and camping card is a fabulous masculine card and might just be a perfect Father’s Day card!

You’ve heard me say before that I love slimline cards for their added real estate and ability to add LOADS of details spaced out enough so each one can be fully appreciated. On this slimline fishing and camping card I was able to do just that with a whole collection of Rubbernecker dies. Cutting all the elements with the same card stock colors adds continuity and also lets each detail pop on its own. Let’s dive in to the making – it’s easier than it looks, no matter how you arrange your elements it will look terrific and it’s actually kind of fun!

A slimline fishing and camping card loaded with yellow, teal blue and red themed details made using dies from Rubbernecker.

Slimline Card Base, Frame and Grass

  • Use teal cardstock to cut the 8.50″ x 7.00″ card base.
  • Place the card base on the Scor-Pal with the 7.00″ side along the top and score at 3.50″.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the Slimline Nested Stitch Die.
  • Place the white stitched layer back on the cutting platform, line up the Slimline Inside Rounded Square and cut the frame openings.
  • Cut three small grass strips and attach them to the back bottom of each frame opening using double stick tape.
  • Use white cardstock to cut a 7.00″ x 2.00″ layer to fit behind the frame layer and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Adhere strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame layer and attach it to the card base.

The Fishing and Camping Images

  • Cut the Cooler, Tackle Box, Fishing Vest and Camping Items using bright yellow, teal, gray metallic, vellum and red cardstock. 
  • A tiny die cut fishing vest, rod and catch of the day all made with dies from Rubbernecker adorn today's slimline fishing and camping card.
  • Assemble the parts and pieces of each image and attach them together using glossy accents and rolled up double stick tape.

  • Pro Tip:  Use rolled up 1/8″ or 1.4″ double stick tape when you want to add dimension to die cut images but mounting tape or pop dots are just too thick.  
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the images and attach them to the frame and card base.
  • Use a thin strip of rolled up 1/8″ double stick tape to attach the fishing rod.
