Handmade By the Tide card
Today’s card is a masculine card that I designed for Father’s Day with the By the Tide stamp set. As a person that loves the Ocean and living near the beach, I love this set! Card Details: The card base is Crumb Cake Cardstock and the background is from the Fresh Prints designer paper pack which has a lot of great bright colored designs. The Coral is stamped with Calypso Coral ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. The piece stamped with coral is layered with a piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock. The Lobster is stamped with Rose Red ink and punched out using the 1 3/4″ circle punch. NOTE: I stamped the lobster twice and cut out the ends of the pinchers to make them extend beyond the side of the circle to give the piece more depth. The fish is inked with Wild Wasbi ink and punched out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch. I used a blender pen with a little marina mist ink to add blue shading to the fish and sponged the edge of the circle with marina mist ink. The sea horse is stamped with Summer Starfruit ink and punched out with the 1″ circle punch. The edge is sponged with summer starfruit ink pad. The anchor in the upper right corner is stamped with Soft Suede ink and punched out with the 1″ circle punch. I layered this onto a scrap of Soft Suede card stock and used a dimensional to add the depth to the card. Finally, the card is finished with a piece of burlap trim and a Naturals Button with a piece of Calypso Coral bakers twine fed through the button holes. This card uses the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge for this week!
