The Open Sea Father's Day Card

Now that Mother's Day has passed, it's time to work on Father's Day cards.  This card is based on a card made by Darlene Stamps at Split Coast Stampers.  I did change it a bit.  I started to make the lines on my score board but it got messed up so I just gave up.  I stamped the background instead.  It still has a nice effect, plus I got to use another stamp from that set!!!  One that I don't get to use too often.  I used hemp twine for the knots. I also taped them to the back.  I taped them well too, I didn't want them coming loose.  That front panel was set in place using Dimensionals.  

The focal panel was cut 2-3/8" x 3-3/8".  The Early Espresso layer was cut 1/8" larger.  The stamped background Crumb Cake layer was cut 5-1/8" x 3-3/8".  The Early Espresso layer behind that was cut at 5-1/4" x 4".  The layers were set in place on a folded half sheet of Whisper White card stock.  

I used a blender pen and Pacific Point to add the water below the ship.  

I just realized I had not added the brads to my card.  I added candy dots (after I realized I forgot the brads) instead.  I will take a photo of it tomorrow and show you.  It does make a BIG difference!!!

This was a very easy and fun card to make.  Plus it's a great masculine card.  Wouldn't it make a great masculine birthday card too?

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Nice mixture of stamps to add what appears to be texture as well as layers.

Nice manly card...
