I got the inspiration for this card from the new challenge at Fusion - FUSION#36. I really like the nautical theme photo and I've used the sketch too. I started by stamping a wood grain background on the card. I cut a white fishtail banner which I embossed to resemble waves and then lightly ran an ink pad over the top to bring out the waves. I die cut a tag in navy, added a little yellow star, die cut an anchor and added a Father's Day sentiment. I attached the tag with dimensional tape. I finished the front with another anchor leaning against the tag. I die cut the anchor and then stamped the imaged on top. A note about the stamping - I got my new Misti last week and it's just fabulous. It makes it so much easier to stamp on dies like this and if the image isn't quite perfect you can restamp in exactly the same place - love my Misti!!! Anyway, back to the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of aqua card and stamped a simple image on the white panel, leaving lots of room for message.
I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations - don't forget you can make any masculine style project - card, ATC, scrapbook page, even a 3D project - but you MUST use a tag.
