The Open Sea

Need a masculine card?  Here you go. The Open Sea stamp set is very versatile.  Although it is one that can be used for our male population, it will also fit any traveling occasion or new beginning. Any type of new adventure or endeavor can be commemorated with this stamp set. The technique I used here is known as triple layering. I have no idea who came up with this, but I love it and think it is genius! 

First, you cut out your white card stock into the three sizes used. Measurements appear below. Using a dab of temporary glue, you glue the three pieces of white card stock together centering one on top of the other. Using Pacific Point classic ink, stamp the ship in the center of the card stock.  Using Chocolate Chip classic ink, stamp the other images randomly around the ship as you like. Next, you want to dry emboss the white card stock. I used the Square Lattice folder to try to create a choppy kind of background. You may use any folder you deem is fitting, or choose to skip the dry embossing altogether. Now, carefully take the three white card stock pieces apart and affix the two top pieces to their Pacific Point counterparts. Make sure that you are aligning the images together to create that 3-D effect. Take the Cherry Cobbler baker's twine and wrap it around these two pieces.  Insert the twine through the neutral colored button. I used a glue dot to make sure the button would stay in place. Then you double knot the twine and trim it to your liking. You then place these two pieces onto the third and final layer of your card stock, and you are done! If you want your images to pop out more, you can use dimensionals in between the layers. Now, fill in the inside of the card and make someone smile today!
