This is a standard A2 size card. The mat is 4" x 5.25" and embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. The blue strips for water were cut at (I believe - I forgot to write it down) at 1.5", 1.75", and 2". I used the Fiskars scallop border punch and embossed just the top one with D'vine Swirls to make them look like waves. The fishing pole is threaded with embroidery floss. On it I added a Stampin' Up brad to make it look like a reel. I also added a gem from The Paper Studio to the hook. The fish is embossed with Tiny Bubbles. Of course it needed a little more sparkle, so I added green stickles to the rod, "DAD" and fish.
* Fishing Pole - Simply Charmed - Cut at 2.75"
* Fish - Create-a-Critter (I liked this fish better) - Cut at 1"
* "DAD" - Pooh Font (marker and shadow marker- I hid the
inside cuts on the shadow) - Cut at 1"
