The Open Sea for a Navy Dad

This time of the year gets me thinking about the men in my life that I love and admire...family members who have proudly served our country and Father's Day peeking just around the corner.  I usually struggle with the manly cards, but when I start with a great manly stamp set, and a simple sketch layout, the manliness comes together quite easily!  I made my way over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and this is what I came up with.  

 Here's to a smooth sailing Memorial Day Weekend!  Happy Unofficial Start to Summer stamping friends!

  • The Open Sea stamp set
  • Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set
  • Soft Suede card base
  • Midnight Muse card stock cut to 5 1/4" by 4"
  • Print Poetry DSP cut to 4 1/2" by 3 1/4"
  • Cherry Cobbler card stock cut to 1 1/8" by 4"
  • Soft Suede ink pad
  • Midnight Muse ink pad
  • Cherry Cobbler ink pad
Baker's Tip:  Use a bone folder to gently curl each end of the Cherry Cobbler strip, curling both sides of the paper until it starts to pull apart into two pieces.  Gently pull the card stock apart until you have two pieces.  Now you have two velvety strips of card stock to give your card another dimension.
