Whimsical Wednesday Challenge - Take Shape

Good Morning and welcome to the next Whimsical Wednesday Challenge!  This week our challenge is to make a shaped card.  I love to make these cards because I "have" to use my Gypsy!!!  I decided to make a Father's Day theme because that's the next bunch of cards I need.
The fishing pole and fish were cut out twice and layered for extra dimension.  Then I added some glossy accents to parts of the fishing pole.



Materials:
Cricut Cartridges   Boys Will Be Boys and Elegant Edges
Cardstock  Paper Trey Ink - Dark Chocolate and Kraft
Patterned Paper  DCWV - Guy Stack
1 1/8" Circle Punch
Glossy Accents
IRock

Please be sure to visit the Whimsical Wednesday Blog to see what the rest of our Design Team had created!  All of the details of the challenge, the prize and the link for your project are listed.  We can't wait to see what you will come up with!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Love and Hugs, Cathryn :)

What a fantastic shape card! I love the creativity of it. I have to get the elegant edges cart. I tried to but it is sold out in most place. I love the papers and the colors you used for this card. The fish and fishing pole is perfect on the shape you chose. You totally rocked it and managed to make a masculine card!:)

Hugs,
Stephanie

Great color scheme and paper choices! I'm so afraid to use pattern paper in my cricut cuts because I don't have the best eye for colors and matching! This is perfect! TFS!
