Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the little ship's wheel stamp in the 4 corners of a piece of Milk Card using Jet Black Archival. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. I wrapped a piece of Black/Ivory Striped Grosgrain around the centre.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Anchors Away Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Three Die Set and inked through the die with Black Soot.

I stamped the frame from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Nested Medallion Labels. I cut a Spellbinders Asian Motifs Die out of Black Card.

I tied a knot in a piece of the Grosgrain Ribbon.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Black Pearl PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  19. Hello Julia and all

    Great Card. I think this card just shows how the products can be use for both genders just by changing the colour. Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes

  22. Hi Julia. Nice to see a male card. Most of us find male cards difficult, unfortunately, the majority of cards I send out are male. SueL x

    Lovely card for the boys today & love the monochrome colours as it always looks clean & striking I think.
