Taylored Expressions: Inspired by Pinterest

Taylored Expressions maintains a fabulous array of Pinterest Boards sorted by product and some by theme.  It's a fabulous source of inspiration and the Baker's Dozen design team is tasked with showing you how we were inspired by a card.  I was still in need of Father's Day cards and was inspired by Jen's card found here.

The layers and dimension are amazing!  I had a difficult time not simply copying the card!!  I ended up creating a strip that included a layered and dimensional scene.  I made it a little more masculine by adding a fishing pole and some fish (although I will take some grief from my husband about fishing for goldfish!)

The fishing pole is actually cut off of the fishing boat die.  (I am feeling quite proud of myself for that small bit of creativity!)

Be sure to check out Jen's blog, Deconstructing Jen, for all of her amazing inspiration (and a great sketch challenge!)

  3. Great card! You got in so much (without overdoing it) in just a strip - amazing! Love the sentiment :)

  4. This is fabulous Kim!! Love every little special detail. Cute sentiment too!!

  5. Brilliant, Kim...absolutely brillant! Love this charming fishing scene you've created and yes, you should be proud of that fishing pole. As for the 'gold fish' grief...MEN! Too funny!
