Opportunity Comes Knockin'

I needed a masculine birthday card for a good friend this week. Craft Brew to the rescue. Lots of fun on this one.


I usually have a mental list of things to try with various stamp sets. One of those this time around was to use Sentiment Signs on the Pub Glass Die. The pub glass narrows, so the Sentiment Signs fit better on top than bottom, so selective inking was necessary.  Gave me a chance to use die cut letters from the Phrase Play #4 Die as a focal point toward the bottom. And the "It's Beer:30" from Craft Brew fits nicely underneath at the more narrow part of the glass.

Also on my mental list was to place a glass of beer on the diagonal frame from Travel Plans. Love this stamp. The set is worth it for it alone. All the other great images and sentiments are a nice bonus.

In the mail this goes. Fortunately, my husband already bought the said friend a beer and lunch on his birthday. I'm merely continuing the theme.


  1. This one pushed my over the edge. LOVE it!

  2. Great card Erin, love it!! Love the sentiment sign in the beer and the Travel plan border!! Back to my PTI wishlist! :)
