Uniko Studio - Nautical Treasure ...

...  Hello.  It's Day 2 of the Uniko Studio introduction posts and I'm here to share with you a card made using Nautical Treasure.  I think you all know that I really enjoy making masculine style cards and this mini-set is absolutely perfect for guy cards.  Here's my card:

Just for You - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Nautical Treasure
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Sahara Sand, Tangerine Tango, Soft Suede
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Rectangles #4, Dual Stitched Rectangles #2
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Soft Suede; SU DP - Tangerine Tango, Sahara Sand


I used the colours from this week's CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#123 and I'm also submitting to Happy Little Stampers May CAS challenge - HLSMayCAS to use die cuts or punches.  I created my background by stamping a grid of the large compass with the smaller compass inside.  I stamped the boat onto white card and again on some scrap design paper.  I really like paper piecing and the sails were so easy to do.  I added the Fleur De Lys emblem to the large sail.  I layered the white die cut panel on some brown card and then adhered the whole image to the card with dimensional tape.  I finished the front with a simple message.  On the inside I cut mat layer of brown card and on the white panel added another boat and compass.


Don't forget to visit the rest of the team's blogs - they have all made something special to share with you.

A wonderful colour scheme and one I wouldn't have thought to use for a masculine card, but it works really well. Love the stamped background and I'm with you on paper piecing the sails, I just can't stop! Lol! FAB showcase of the set. Hugs Bev x
