Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using the following stamps:

Ship at Sea Ahoy Lined Background

I am always trying to add to my card stash "Masculine" themed cards that I can pull and pretty much use for any occasion.  Today's card can be used for the following types of occasions.  Retirement, Birthday, Fathers day, Get Well, just to name a few.

Card Recipe:
I stamped the Lined Background using an acrylic block in a random pattern on a piece of Neenah 110lb cardstock using Versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Next I used Memento Dew Drops in Nautical Blue with a blending pad to give an ombre effect. Once I was happy with the blending I die cut with a stitched rectangle die and set it aside.  Then I stamped the Ship at Sea using my Tim Holtz stamp platform onto some Varsity Blue cardstock using a white pigment ink pad and applied clear embossing powder.  I then die cut the ship with a smaller stitched rectangle die and set it aside.  The last thing to stamp was the Ahoy which i stamped onto a piece of velum using the Nautical Blue ink pad (NOTE: my inkpad is super juicy and I used my heat gun held at a distance to speed up drying) I then tore the edges of the velum to add some interest to the layer.

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I affixed the blended background layer to an A2 sized side folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock. Next was attaching the piece of burlap which I removed threads from all sides to give the current appearance.  I then affixed the ship layer using a good layer of Tombow glue and placed a couple of acrylic blocks on top to really set the layer on top of the burlap. The Ahoy sentiment was attached using Tombow again behind the stamped letters and also where I knew I was going to be attaching the pearlescent embellishments.
