Nautical Fun

This is the card I made my Brother-in-law for his birthday:

The image is a La Pashe decoupage sheet and the papers are from my Bearly Mine Designer Extreme CD.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.  I matted the image onto blue card stock and then onto Kraft to make it stand out a little.

This is the inside of my card, I tried to show the decoupage but I don't think I succeeded.

I always find it difficult to embellish men's cards so I kept it simple, just some twine with a button tied to one side.


Image: La Pashe
Papers: Bearly Mine Designer Extreme CD
Card Stock: Dies to Die For - Kraft, blue card from stash
Embellishments: twine and button from stash
Sentiment: LOTV label stamp, Wild Rose Studio text stamp
