Hope you’re having a great weekend! Today, I have a another card using the From Land to Sea stamp set. Because of the nautical theme, this stamp set is great for making manly cards! I find that I don’t have a lot of stamp sets that work well for guy cards, so this is a big bonus for me.
I love the background paper on this card. Believe it or not, it’s part of the Pretty Petals Designer Paper Stack!!! This stack has gorgeous colors, and I realized as I was thumbing through all the papers, that there are a lot that would work well with manly cards. Who would have thought that from a paper stack called Pretty Petals? With the bold Pacific Point stripes on this particular paper, I thought it worked perfectly with my nautical themed card.
I used the Oval Collection Framelits to cut out my two main layers from Crumb Cake card stock and Watercolor Paper. Then, I stamped the swordfish with Black Stazon ink and watercolored it with Pacific Point, Crumb Cake and Marina Mist inks.
I also stamped the wheel with Black Stazon ink on Crumb Cake card stock and watercolored it with Early Espresso.
To make the card more manly, I sponged all the edges with Early Espresso ink.
I tried to keep my embellishments manly. So, I stuck with some 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon, which again works well with the nautical theme, and some Linen Thread and Pacific Point Candy Dots from the Brights Collection. I think this came together rather well, if I don’t say so myself. Yeah!!
