Hi Stampers.  We’ve gotten some good rain here today – makes me dream about our upcoming cruise to the Southern Caribbean.  It’s not for over a year, but still – a girl can dream…


This card starts with a Marina Mist card base – 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  I then stamped on the card base using the World Map background stamp and Marina Mist ink.  The circles for the focal point of this card were cut in Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card stock using the oval framelits.  Onto the Very Vanilla oval I stamped the ship from the Stampin’ Up! Traveler stamp set in Early Espresso ink and the swoosh from the Work of Art stamp set in Marina Mist ink. For the piercing around the edge of the Early Espresso oval I used the paper piercing tool.  The layers were then assembled using snail adhesive.  Easy peasy, masculine card. 🙂
