Today I have a nautical themed masculine card to share with you that
includes a fun way to mixing your dry embossing with your wet
embossing. (For complete instructions on this fun technique - visit the Cropstop blog
After I created my shimmering background, I inked up the front panel with white pigment ink. I then ran my Paper Distresser
along the edges, and attached it to the front of my card using my ATG gun
. Next I stamped my Postcard stamp (Hampton Art) in Vintage Photo Distress Ink
and added a sailboat image (Set Sail – Stampin’ Up) in Blueprint Sketch DI
. After distressing the edges I used my Tim Holtz Ink Applicator
to blend in some ink for a vintage look. I added an old stamp to the
postcard and tied a tiny nautical knot around the front using natural burlap string
. The postcard is layered over a globe (from World Travels — stamped in ground espresso
), and tiny gears accent both the top and bottom. The sentiment is cut with the Rat a Tat Sizzix
alphabet set and stamped with a linen stamp in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Inside I used my stencil brushes
and a burlap stencil
(Tim Holtz) with two colors of distress ink: Vintage Photo and Brushed Corduroy.
I stamped a sentiment from the All Things Are Possible
set (Heartfelt Creations)
in Chipped Sapphire
and used my Prismacolor pencils to color in certain parts of it.
