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
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.
