If you have a fisherman in your life, then I really think you should make this 3D tackle box card! My Dad loves to fish. So, when I saw the Gone Fishing bundle, I knew I had to purchase the bundle just so I could make a card or two for him. Out of all the new products, this was the fist one I grabbed to start creating.
The new In Color, Boho Blue seemed perfect for the tackle box. I cut out two pieces of Boho Blue using the divider die. Using two pieces glued together helped strengthen the card. As the card would be opened and closed a lot, adding the extra paper helps.
All the cute stamps and dies really make this card extra fun. I’m not exactly sure what all the lure pieces are (since I haven’t been fishing in decades). But you will find a wonderful variety to choose from. Most of the stamps are two step stamps which add dimension and enable you to use a variety of colors. I used most of the stamps and dies in the set but also went out on a limb, creating my own “lure”. Can you spot it in the photo?
Here is the Top and the Bottom of the Card
Most of the different elements used in this card are probably self explanatory. What you may not realize is that the card uses two tiny magnets for the closure. I love using the tiny magnets in my 3D projects. Total Elements is my go-to when ordering magnets. The size that I used for this tackle box card was the 1/4 x 1/32 size.
If you are interested in how I put the card together, I made a YouTube video that you can watch here. Because lot of people want to see the entire process, I made a longer video than normal. Feel free to fast forward and skip around to see the parts you need.
Here is the top of the card
Without a doubt, I enjoyed playing with all of the elements in this card. The embossing folder under “DAD” is a brand new folder called, Twisted Rope 3D. My proto type card did not use any embossing folder under the DSP. I decided that the Cane Weave 3D embossing folder was the perfect fit. The cane weave reminds me of the outdoors. So, I added it to the final card which seemed to me to be just the ticket for the top of the tackle box.
