I’ve got a card for the guys today, inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I picked up the Sailing Home stamp set that has been around for a little while now to create my main images. For those of you who know me, most times, I will get those beachy sets in our catalogues as I love working with them.

My card began with a piece of scrap I had leftover after creating my Card Club cards for this month. The white cardstock embossed with the Bark embossing folder became the vertical strip on my card.

I scraped the edges of this strip along the Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy pastels to create the coloured border.

The compass was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in White on the background. Then I added Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy Pastels over it with my Blending Brush. This was blended on the bottom left and top right for continuity.

I stamped the anchor in Bermuda Bay and edged with the Night of Navy pastel to create the two-tone effect. The rope was die cut from Crumb Cake cardstock to coordinate with the Crumb Cake mat I added under the main layer.

The sentiment was heat embossed on Pacific Point cardstock as the Night of Navy pastel when applied, had a more vibrant tone as that of Pacific Point. Poppy Parade sails add a pop of colour to make this card have a marine look.

The Crumb Cake layer was mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add more depth.
