One for the boys

Good Morning, colder weather hit us again over the weekend - just when we had planted out some baby plants!
Today I have taken over the SumMore Fun Blog with a card for the boys. I killed 2 birds with one stone with this one, it was James's birthday on the 7th so my card was used for him.
I have used 2 stamp sets on this card the first being Welcome To The Cabin:

The set is all about hunting and fishing so I chose some of the wording and added fishes and fishing rod (from the same stamp set) onto a piece of white card I had lightly inked with green and brown ink. This was then added to my card base which had first been matted with dark green card.

Putting this to one side I then used my second stamp which is Chicken Wire This is a large stamp that is just what the item says it is chicken wire, here is a close up:

I stamped this onto acetate and using foam tape I placed this over my first stamping. My original idea was to make this a shaker card using some of the stamped fish from the first stamp set I used but they wouldn't lay right and 'shake' under the acetate. So instead I die cut a frame using some real tree design paper and added this over my images.

As this was for my son I die cut the letters and added son to the side of the card.
