NAUTICAL BIRTHDAY CARD

It was my turn this week to choose the challenge over at CardCamp. I decided the challenge was to make a card with a "Nautical Theme".

These are the products used to make this card...

Night of Navy card stock - SU
Dark red card stock - Unknown
Very Vanilla card stock - SU
Close to Cocoa ink - SU
Night of Navy ink - SU
Sea Charms Die-namics -MFT
Blueprints Tag Builder 4 Die-namics - MFT
Blueprints Tag Builder 5 Die-namics - MFT
Stitched Rectangle Frame Die-namics -MFT
Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set - SU
Set Sail Stamp Set - SU
Old World Map Background Stamp - SU

The vanilla cardstock was covered with various amounts of Close to Cocoa ink using a sponge dauber to give the paper more of a vintage look. A bronze brad was used on the charm in the circle and popped up from the card using stampin' dimensionals.

I really like how this came out and looking forward to making more nautical cards. They're perfect for when you need a masculine card.
