Gone Fishing

I needed another male birthday card and this Aussie Santa is sooo perfect! With him holding the beer can AND in flip flops, what more do you need? I am a little disappointed in the colours, Glenda says it still looks like a masculine card, I love the colouring but I'm thinking I should have used a more blue colour not the teal. The real kicker is Wayne, being a guy, probably won't even notice the colour, lol!!! Since this is for my husbands friend he picked the sentiment. How true it is.

I've entered this into Totally Stampalicious with anything goes, Your Next Stamp Challenge texture it, and Crafty Purple Frog challenge use ribbon and texture.

Stamps: Make it Crafty Aussie Santa, Stampin Up Sanded
Paper: Stampin Up taken with teal, daffodil delight, whisper white
Ink: taken with teal, craft summer sun
Other: clear embossing powder, ribbon, making memories brads, stampin up ticket punch, designer label punch, crystal effects and curlicue.


  1. Awesome colors! Even for a guy! But, you're absolutely correct, it's the awesome sentiment that's going to be appreciated!

  2. I still think the teal/aqua colour is great and this card is certainly not feminine. Awesome card Dawn, that image rocks! love your brads..

  3. will be awesome!!!
