“Best Catch” Card in a Box

Here is a fun, masculine themed card that I created for a good friend.  These “card in a box” fancy fold cards are not hard to make so I don’t know why I waited so long to feature one on my blog.

This is perfect for the fishing enthusiast and a fun birthday card to receive, don’t you think?

What fisherman wouldn’t like to go home with a stringer of fish!


I used various sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set on the back of the card.  All I need to do is sign the card before giving it to our friend.

Broadway Birthday – bring it on!

Do you ever buy a stamp set and then have trouble coming up with ideas of how to use it?  That’s what happened with me when I bought the Broadway Birthday stamp set and coordinating Broadway Delight Dies.

But no more – I CASED this card from Pinterest.  Once I broke the ice getting comfortable with this stamp set, I have more ideas waiting in the wings for how to use it.  This card is perfect for teens, kids, and the masculine members of your family.
