Ship in a Bottle- Fathers Day Card


I am trying a loose version of a monochromatic card for Father's Day.  
I hope others will like it as much as I do. 
 It has always been a challenge to create masculine cards for most folks.  

   Sin City Stamp- Nautical and Nautical 2 stamp sets
   Fish background stamp
   White embossing powder
   Heat gun
   Teal ink
   Black ink
   Silver marker
   Father's Day sentiment stamp
   Foam tape

Step 1:  Stamp the Ship in Bottle image in black ink on white card stock.

Step 2:  Emboss the sentiment on a blue banner in white.

Step 3:  Using the Rule of Thirds, stamp the fish background stamp over 2/3's of the card layer using embossing ink.  Stamp anchor from Sin City Nautical 2 set and emboss in white on the other third of the card layer.

Step 4:  Cut out Ship in Bottle and ink blend teal over entire image.  Using the silver marker color the bottle cap in.

Step 5:  Assemble card by using pop ups to give the bottle and multi-layered sentiment dimension.

A Father's Day card couldn't be any simpler.  I know any Dad would love to get this card on his special day.

  1. Just SUPER FINE Adam. What a great background with the fish but so perfect that you didn't go all the way across - the anchor is an AWESOME choice. Really FAB card! Xj.
