Here's a card for a man - the ones that take ages to come up with an idea for!
Now I can't take credit for the design of the stamped background as Chris (sis-in-law)
stamped a sheet of this last week at my house and kindly gave me a half of it.
I can tell you how it's done though!!
The colour combo is Crumb Cake card stock
with Night of Navy, Marina Mist, More Mustard and Basic Grey inks
and an Ivory base card .
The solid rectangles were stamped with a blank stamp in Marina Mist, More Mustard and Basic Grey.
(Chris used the one that comes with the distressing kit)
The over-stamping was done using Night of Navy and The Open Sea stamp set.
The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and was stamped
either side of the anchor by using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
This was then embossed using the Textured Impressions Designer frames embossing folder.
The oval shape with the sentiment on was then cut out by hand -
sorry there isn't a punch for the outside of this oval (only the inside!).
The stamped background is matted onto the crumb Cake card and a length
of Natural Trim ribbon (available 1st February) is then stuck vertically around this.
This is then mounted onto an Ivory (or Very Vanilla) base card.
The ladies at my Tuesday class can't wait to make this!
