You Touched My Life

Hi Bloggers.

One for the boys today -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I wrapped a piece of mesh ribbon from my stash around the centre.

I stamped the frame and the ship from the Justrite Anchors Away Clear Stamp Set using Sepia Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Nested Medallion Labels Die Set and inked through the die with Vintage Photo.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Sepia Archival. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Ornate Squares Die and inked through the die with Vintage Photo.

I cut the largest 2 dies from Sue's Valencia Die Set together out of Chestnut Card.

I attached a Creative Expressions Fancy Key Charm and a Chain Tassel using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue and some frayed strands from my Mesh Ribbon.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Brads to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Ivory PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

    I love this stamp and the dies. I don't think I've seen this stamp before.

  14. Hi Julia, this format for me makes really good male cards, by interchanging words and pictures. Thank you for the idea. The sentiment I would use a lot.
