Masculine Monotone | ft. Stampin' Up "The Open Sea"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Today, I wanted to share another masculine card that I created. This time using "The Open Sea" stamp set by Stampin' Up. I discovered, once I found the design that I liked, this card is very easy to reproduce and can be done so in any colour palette. It doesn't have to be monochrome, but I think it lends a very classy look to it.
This design could easily be used for any occasion, it all depends on what you put on the inside. I used this one for a birthday card.
To begin, I stamped the ledger image using CTMH Chocolate ink in the upper left corner of my panel, I then stamped it a second time offset down and to the right - without reinking my stamp. I love the way second generation stamping gives that antique faded look.
I then stamped the ship on a scrap of cardstock and cut it out using one of my oval dies from Spellbinder. I cut a cross piece from the same white paper.
I used a very dark brown cardstock to create border layers for all my pieces and then assembled them on the front of my standard A2 sized card base.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
