Adventure Awaits

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve had a great Monday!

I’m bringing you another nautical card today that is simple but striking:

What do you think? I’m pretty happy with how this turned out!

I started with a Rustic White card base. I temporarily adhered an anchor shaped mask to the base (I drew and cut the anchor from acetate) and sprayed the base with Chalkboard Glimmer Mist in Cornflower Blue. I wish I had some navy spray mist instead but this still turned out nice!

When dry I stamped the stars from the Come Sail Away set using Versamark ink then heat embossed with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder.

I die cut the banner from Stamper’s Select White cardstock using the Tilted Banner die, and curved a sentiment from Come Sail Away before stamping and heat embossing. I adhered the banner using Pinflair Glue Gel and that was all that was needed for this card!

Well, I hope I can be back to a better blogging schedule tomorrow! I’ve been creating loads but they’re all for publication submissions so I can’t share! I am also *way* behind on leaving and returning comments on others’ blogs so please forgive me – I will catch-up soon I hope! I do hope you’ll leave some love for this card before you head on your way though! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I actually like the cornflower blue over the navy, just to change things up a bit. And you know I'm infatuated with gold! Would you believe I actually chose COPPER over gold embossing today? Crazy, I know.

  2. Oh, this is so cool and striking, T.! I always love how your cards demand and second glance to take in all the beautiful details!
