As soon as I saw this Fishing Riley stamp by Riley & Co., I knew he needed to be part of my stamp collection. Our son likes moose and he's an avid fisherman (so much so that he's the fishing manager at our local Bass Pro Shops). This made Fishing Riley the perfect image for him! I finally got brave enough to color Riley with my copic markers (images with a lot of coloring really push my comfort zone) just in time for our son's birthday. Masculine cards are always a challenge for me but cute images like this sure help!
I used this Double Pocket Card tutorial on SCS to make my card. A gift card is in the first pocket and is hidden behind the Riley panel. I paper pieced the boat and Riley's hat.
A tag in the 2nd pocket has a sentiment from another new favorite stamp. This card opens up so that my husband and I were able to write a birthday note to him.
