For this card, I've used two different patterns from the fabulous new Designer Series Paper called Nautical Expedition --perfect for masculine cards for all occasions. In addition, I used the Sail Away Individual Stamp and the Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine!
The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White.
Additional Supplies used include the Scallop Border Punch, Large Oval and Scallop Oval Punches, Night of Navy Brads, The Crop A Dile, the Big Shot and the Square Lattice Impressions Folder and Stampin' Dimensionals!
I stamped the ship image on Whisper White cardstock with Not Quite Navy Ink and then stamped the image a second time on a scrap of paper, cutting it out. I sponged on some ink to look like the sky and then layered the second, cut-out image using Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment is from another new Summer Mini set called On the Grow. It seemed perfect for this nautical card! I added a little somethin' something' to the inside of the card with a strip of DSP and scallop edged cardstock.
