Uniko - Theme ....

... Hello and good morning! I'm a bit late with my post for our new challenge at Uniko - UC#41. This month challenge is to create a

MASCULINE CARD with the optional twist of FATHER'S DAY

I did have this card ready yesterday, but I've been having some 'puter issues, hopefully now resolved. Anyway, I decided to go with the option of a Father's Day card:

Stamps: Uniko - Background Builders Round in Circles, Nautical Treasures
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy, Smoky Slate
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Night of Navy; Silver and Gold Embossing Powders

I got the idea for this from an advert on TV the other day - it was black with gold and silver dots, and it reminded me of these stamps. I used my MISTI to stamp the diagonal lines - it makes it so much easier to get even stamping. I embossed the stamped images with a mixture of silver and gold embossing powders, cut the panel to size and adhered it to a white card. I added some distressed circles in the corner using first and second generation stamping. I cut a strip of white card onto which I stamped the greeting and adhered it to the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of navy card and on the white panel added some more circles, this time pale grey, a greeting ad a compass. I'm submitting this card to the current Fusion - FUSION#73 challenge where I've been inspired by the navy patterns idea - although I used circles.

I love all that yummy embossing on this card Deborah! I love that the cover is different patterns, but the circles bring it all together. The inking on the inside is wonderful too - so smart to stamp with different colors of ink
