The Open Sea Father's Day

Happy Monday, everyone!  I wanted to show all of you the card I made my dad for Father's Day yesterday.  I used the stamp set, The Open Sea (p. 9), from the Summer Mini.  The picture didn't turn out very well, because I had to take the picture inside.  The lighting in my office isn't very good.  The colors look better in real life, but I did adjust the picture some, so it's close.  The designer paper that I used is also in the Summer Mini.  It's called Nautical Expedition DSP (p. 8).  The paper really coordinates well with this set.  I also tied on some Cherry Cobbler/White Baker's Twine (p. 10) from the Summer Mini along the bottom of the blue layer.  I also wanted some texture on the card base, so I embossed it with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder (p. 214).

Here are a couple tips about the card.  I got the burned-edge look on the Not Quite Navy layer by tearing the card stock and then brushing the Not Quite Navy Classic ink pad across the torn edge.  I really like using this effect.  If you look closely, you can see that I stamped the globe from the stamp set behind the ship.  I inked it up with Soft Suede Classic ink and stamped it twice on a piece of scrap paper before stamping it onto the right side of the white card stock.  I then stamped the ship onto it.
