Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Masculine Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning, peeps. Today I have chosen to use the Sailing Home Stamp Set to make my card. The design is based on one of Sharon Armstrong's Easy Peasy designs.

My card base is a flat piece of Basic Black Card Stock cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". This is a fun fold card so the next piece of black is cut at 3" wide by 8 1/2" tall. You then score it at 4 1/4", fold and burnish it. 

To that fold, adhere a piece of DSP. I used a pattern from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. It is cut at 2 3/4" x 4". The sentiment is stamped on scrap Gray Granite, stamped in black ink, "bannerized" and sponged with Smoky Slate along the edges. The sentiment is from the Special Someone Stamp Set and I adhered it with mini dimensionals.

On the inside of the folded part, I stamped a sentiment from Sailing Home. I had a ship's wheel in my stash so I adhered that. That had been cut with a die from the Smooth Sailing Dies. It's Silver Foil and Early Espresso.

I cut a piece of Smoky Slate Card Stock 2 3/4" x 4". I stamped the lighthouse and bird images in Smoky Slate ink. It's adhered with liquid glue.

I'm entering my card in the ATG Challenge at Through The Craft Room Door and the ATG Challenge M2520 at Repeat Impressions. There are some beautiful cards to view at each site.

Thank you for stopping by today.
