My dad's birthday is at the end of June and so I made this card for him. We live on the ocean here in Anacortes, WA and he loves boats, shrimping, crabbing, and fishing so I think he'll like the images on this card! The layout is based upon this week's MOJO 296 Sketch. It was the perfect inspiration for what I needed to help me create this card. The circles in the card layout coincided excellently with the images in The Open Sea stamp set.
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
- I stamped the ship in Midnight Muse ink on Whisper White card stock, then punched it out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch
- The anchor image was randomly stamped repeatedly in Crumb Cake ink below the ship. I tied Linen Thread around the side of that strip of card stock rather than the three brads like the layout had.
- The By The Tide Stamp set has this cute Nantucket Oceanside Inn image with the anchor and I just love it. Especially because there is a Nantucket Inn here in Anacortes, WA where we live! It perfectly coordinates and fits with the 1" Circle Punch. It's stamped in Midnight Muse ink on Very Vanilla card stock.
