My dad's b-day is tomorrow. I thought I would make a fun nautical card for him. He has never seen the ocean so he would think the theme would be neat. Perhaps seeing this card will convince him to come to the Atlantic (or Canada, even!). :)
The card base is made from Kraft card stock. JustRite stamp set Anchors away and background stamp, Victorian Tile were used as shown. Twine was sewn into the top of paper to add a bit more nautical feel. My precious scrap piece of gold paper was die cut using Spellbinders set Twisted Metal Tags and Accents. The card stock was trimmed in gold. Gold Stickles was applied to the outline of the Anchors Away die cut and also in the centers of the background stamp. The inside of the card used the Lifestyles Crafts Anchor embossing folder (for the local crafters: it was purchased at Carousel Stamps).
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
