Fan Flash Friday

Hey, did you know that there's something pretty new going on over at the Pink By Design facebook page?  It's called Fan Flash Friday.  Every Friday, Sarah will post a pic of a project she made using PBD stamps.  Once you see her post, you can post any project, old or new (preferably one that uses PBD stamps, but it doesn't have to), to the PBD facebook page.  Then, Sarah will randomly choose one of the people who posts to win an AWESOME prize.  This week, the prize is the Everyday Cricut Cartridge.  Isn't that so easy-peasy?!?!?!? 

This week, I decided to post something new for Fan Flash Friday.  My husband's brother had a birthday on Thursday, so I decided to try making a masculine birthday card for him.  He loves to fish, so this is what I came up with:

This easel card measures about 6" by 5.5" when it is closed.  I used the Camping Critters Cricut Cartridge for the background and the little fishing deer.  The sentiment in the water is from the Pink By Design Woodland Critters stamp set, and the birthday sentiment is from Pink By Design's Birthday, Birthday stamp set.

Here's a view of the card from the side.  I used a couple of brads to help the card stand up like an easel.  You can also use cardstock that's been popped up with pop-dots, but I decided to go with brads this time.

I even made a little pocket that we could tuck some money or a gift card in.  My brother-in-law is still pretty fresh out of college and getting married in September, so money's always a good gift for him. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I hope you like my little masculine card. 

So, what are you waiting for???  Sarah has already posted her project, so head on over to Fan Flash Friday and post a project of your own!
