Earl's Birthday

One of the things I've learned in the five years I have been making cards is how much  my male family members and friends appreciate a hand made card.  According to their wives, they display them and show them off to family and friends.  That was a real eye opener.  Anyway my favorite brother-in-law has a Birthday in May.  He is fun to make cards for because he appreciates them and he has so many hobbies, but fishing is his favorite.  I made this card for him using Theresa Momber's Gone Fishing set available at Gina K Designs.  I stamped the fish with versamark on kraft  card stock and embossed with black embossing powder. The front is a Darce embossing folder and a cattail die from Die Namites. Since fishing would not fit for the words on the inside I used a fish and added the ING.  I did some sponging with tea die ink on all the Kraft panels. The Birthday Message is on the back of the front panel.  

I will enter this in Dies R Us One for the Boys
