Nautical Birthday

I am still working on filling up a box of cards to send to Operation Write Home and I needed some more masculine birthday cards. I think we all have lots of feminine ones, lol! This striped paper from the Festival of Prints DSP stack just seemed perfect for this theme!

This is the first version I made. The striped paper is the only DSP, the rest is stamped and sponged.

I turned the design on it's side for this version, it works well either way!
  • Stamps: The Open Sea, Curly Cute
  • Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Very Vanilla, Festival of Prints DSP stack
  • Other: Sponge, Early Espresso ¼" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon, 2½" Circle punch, Essentials paper piercing pack, paper piercer and piercing mat, 1" Corner punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, buttons, White Baker's Twine, Glue Dots

Then on the inside I did some torn edge sponging and stamping. Love this simple technique :)

Love this! Like everything about it. I pinned it so I can virtually pet it some more.

Vertical or horizontal, these cards are terrific! Love the stamping and sponging on the inside, too.
