Let's Set Sail, Senior Years, Masculine Birthday Card, 2022 Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog

The new stuff arrived!  YAY!  So today I thought I'd use the new "Let's Set Sail" set and matching punch!  Ya gotta love those matching punches and dies!!! I know I do!  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. My card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 5-1/2" x 3-7/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Simply Marbleous" 6" x 6" stack from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  I taped it to the front of the card.

I took a piece of DSP from the "New Horizons" 6" x 6" stack and die cut it using the 4th largest stitched die in the "Rectangle Stitched" Framelits.  If you don't have these dies you can cut the piece 2-5/8" x 4".  And I cut the Basic White layer behind it 1/4" larger. So it would measure 2-7/8" x 4-1/4". 

I stamped the boat using Soft Suede ink and the sails were stamped using Pool Party ink on Basic White card stock. I did stamp and punch them all separately because I tried to cut them all together and I made a mess of it, so I found it easier to just cut them one at a time. I added small Dimenisonals behind them and set them in place on the stitched rectangle piece of DSP. Then I stamped the birds using black Memento ink.

The words are from the "Senior Years" set and were stamped on a piece of Basic White card stock using Soft Suede ink. I cut the piece 3/8" x 1-1/2".  I added Dimensionals behind it and set it in place on the DSP.

I added Dinensionals behind the stitched rectangle piece and set it on the Basic White piece. Then I wrapped some white Baker's twine around the two pieces 3 times and tied a not in the front. This piece was glued to the front of the card and the card was done.

I do like how this card turned out. It's a great masculine card and would be a great Father's Day, sympathy or thinking of you card too.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's masculine card,
