Open Sea: Father’s Day Card…

Good Friday Stampers!

Today’s post features another Father’s Day Card using the Stampin’ Up! Open Sea Stamp Set. I choose earthy colors and aged look for this card to resemble a ship’s log that has been around for a very long time. This was a fun process, so when you make yours play around with it.

Open Sea Father's Day Card 2

I began this card by cutting a

5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of  Not Quite Navy Card Stock scored at 4-1/2″

3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock  and a

3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ piece of Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper

I tore a  sheet of Nautical Designer Series Paper with the log text. Then, I stamped the ship’s log entry image from The Open Sea Stamp Set in Chocolate Chip Ink. I also stamped the compass image  randomly in Ship's Log, Map Stitching Details Chocolate Chip Ink and antiqued the torn edges with my Distressing Kit and a Sponge Dauber.  I punched along one edge with the Spiral Border Punch. On the top of the sheet I stamped Happy Father’s Day in Cherry Cobbler Ink and added a Jumbo Eyelet to the bottom right hand corner.

I love the ne Bakers Twine from Stampin’ Up! I have always collected baker’s twine in all colors and have tons from the bakery shop.  Stampin’ Up!’s twine is a bit thicker, but what I really like is, it coordinates with our ink and card stock. What could be nicer?? I threaded a fat sewing needle with Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine and make two cross stitches and left the threaded needle aside. (Click on photo to the right for enlargement)

Anchor Detail

I stamped  the anchor in Cherry Cobbler Ink, cut it out, and placed a Gold Eyelet on it I threaded the remaining twine through the Eyelet and wove it around the anchor.

On another piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock I stamped the world map in Not Quite Navy Ink and cut it out as well.

Now you have all of the components of the card. Layer everything as the full card photo shows using two Dimensionals behind the world map.
