The Open Sea and FREE Offer! details

Hi there, I forgot to share this card with you the other day. This card was made for my Father-In-Law using the Open Sea stamp set which has 5 super stamps - perfect for a man's card, scrapbooking/journalling and many other papercrafting projects (especially 3-d). This stamp set is in the current Summer Mini Catalogue.

The card stock used was Stampin' Up! colours Pacific Point 116202 and Cherry Cobler, 121681 onto Crumb Cake 121685 and matted with Soft Suede 119982. Stamped with mainly Pacific Point Classic Ink Pad 111837 onto Very Vanilla card Stock 106550 and coloured in with the white Gel Pen 105021 to give the sails, compass and anchor some dimension.
Inside the card, Very Vanilla card stock was matted onto Cherry Cobbler and the large globe stamp was added with Soft Suede ink in a corner (sorry, but I forgot to take the photo of the inside). This card was cased from someone, (I remember seeing a picture on a blog somewhere)  but I can't remember who it was - please let me know if it was you as I would like to give you the recognition you deserve.

I must confess that I meant to use Real Red instead of Cherry Cobbler, but got muddled as both colours were lying on my craft table - ooops! The colour still works well for nautical colours though, as it gives it a more vintage look. The shipping list had the edges distressed with  the 7-sided distressing tool from the Cutter Kit 106958, then daubed with Soft Suede Ink around the edges to give an aged look. If I had only remembered at the time, I could also have added a copy of the original shipping list with my Father-In-Law's name on when he first sailed over to USA in the 1950s to live.

I hope you like this card too, as I had alot of fun making this one.
