By the Sea Masculine Card

Today's card comes from you off the pages of Pinterest!  I found it here.  I did change the "ribbon" part.  I didn't have the ribbon that was used in the original one so I used the "Tasteful Trim" die and cut a scallop to sort of look like waves.  But it didn't! And that's ok.  I like it anyway. It actually looks much better in person.

The squares are set in place using Dimensionals so it gives it some depth.  The squares are punched out with the 1-1/4" punch and behind them they are layered with a 1-3/8" square of Midnight Muse.


The base of the card is Crumb Cake.  Stamp the words on first with Midnight Muse ink and then the sea fern or coral or whatever that is was done using VersaMark and gold embossing powder.  I actually stamped that first and then the words.  I had to blot off the ink from the words that got on the gold.  It still worked out, so either way you want to do it, it's up to you.  The "bubbles" were from a very old and retired "Beyond the Basics" set.  One set I hadn't given up yet.  And see, it came in handy.  I am not sure what was used on the original card but this set came to mind when I was looking at the original.  I wanted to use the "Gorgeous Grunge" set but I don't have it yet!!! I think that splatter in the set would look good there too.


I liked making this card and I think it would be fun to make more for the guys in my life!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
