Stampin' Up! Best Catch Birthday Card

Good morning! As I say this, I'm aware that some of you who follow me are not getting my post notification in the morning. I'm not sure why but if anyone has an answer to that, please let me know in a comment.

What a wonderful stamp set Best Catch is! AND the matching Catch of the Day dies. I watched this video on how to create my card for today. It starts off a little slow but I had to persevere because I needed to CASE Rick Adkins card. Here's mine...

I'm not going to go into the how to's because Rick does an excellent presentation of that.

Here is a photo of the interactive part...

This card was mucho work but also so much fun to create. It definitely will require extra postage and a padded envelope. I created my own with the retired Envelope Punch Board.

Because this is definitely a guy fishing, I'm entering my card in the Make My Monday Challenge #101 and Dare 2B Artsy.

If I make another card like this, I will be more aware of where to place my stopper for the sentiment and the sentiment itself. The fly fisherman should be a little lower because the "It's Your Day" goes underneath the wading pool a little too far. I don't have it pulled up all the way in the photo.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Thanks for stopping by and remember to let me know if you have answer about the post time.


  1. Very cool card Karen! Love the interactive design. Perfect layout too! As far as why your posts come out late in the evening, it's likely a setting in blogger or whoever you have set up as your subscription service that says that your posts will only go out once a day rather than immediately. Hopefully you can find the setting and change it if you don't want them to arrive in the evening. :)

    1. Thanks, Amy. I have no idea who my subscription service is. I think it's built into Blogger.

  2. Cool card!! Love that leaping trout! :)

  3. It looks like a LOT of work. Gorgeous though, and worth the work for a special someone. I have wonderered for some time why I get your posts at 6 pm instead of 6 am. On THursday blog hops I do the hop then at 6 in the evening get the notification that you have a post. Maybe your posts are set for p.m. instead of a.m.??

    1. It was a labor of love and I have had two people who want to buy it but I'm keeping it for my brother's 87th birthday in March. If I get ambitious, I'll make another. I can't find anything anywhere that says when my post will send notifications out so I tried changing one setting...we shall see! Thank you for your comment.

  4. How cool! Love how you colored the image and am the details are awesome. Thanks for playing along with us at Make My Monday Challenge. Looking forward to seeing your creative projects in the future galleries again.
