Guy's Birthday

I am in a SWAP with Kim, Crafty Me. We need to create a Birthday Card. I always find that Guy cards are the most difficult, so I decided to create my cards for a Guy.


I used the Winds of Grace stamp set and the Outlaw Designer Paper. I stamped the image with Timber Brown, Staz on inks. Then I water colored the image with Really Rust, More Mustard, Sage Shadow, and Creamy Caramel. I sponged Bashful Blue around the sails. I distressed the edges of the card stock, and stamped the edges of the designer paper with the diamond image from the All in a Row stamp set. I used the photo corner punch to accent the corner. This is the first time that I used this punch, boy do I love it. I will be using it more often. Believe it or not I did not use dimensionals on this card -- WOW.


Stamps: Winds of Grace, All in a Row, Short & Sweet Inks: Really Rust, More Mustard, Sage Shadow, Creamy Caramel, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Timber Brown Staz On Paper: Chocolate Chip, Natural White, Sage Shadow, Outlaw DP Extras: Photo Corner, Small and Large Oval punches, Copper Brads, Distressing tool, Paint Brush, Sponge
