Global Design Project #047

Over at the Globe Design team blog they are having a Nautical themed challenge and that is perfect for guy cards.

If you would like to join CLICK HERE.

I got my inspiration from the Lawn Fawn blog, CLICK HERE to see the card.

I am combining my favorite ink and paper by Stampin Up with a Lawn Fawn stamp and die set along with some other supplies from my stash.

 I started off by testing what colors would work best for my main image.

I ended up choosing the white heavy weight card stock from Micheal's and some Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

I also tested Real Red ink on the Real Red card stock, its behind the embossed one.
 Here I used the Platinum embossing powder one the white card stock and Baked Brown Sugar card stock by Stampin UP.

The one reason I love Stampin UP card stock is because I realized I stamped the wrong sentiment so I just turned over the paper and re stamped and embossed.
 The stamp set and matching dies are from Lawn Fawn and are called Float My Boat.

I am using Real Red ink on Real Red card stock to create my own background papers, I am using Stampin UP brand and making three cards at once.
 The Real Red is 4 by 5 1/4 inches and I added foam on the back and placed it on a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch piece of Baked Brown Sugar card stock and then I will place all of it on a 110 pound white card base.
 Using some silver thread and looping it alot.
 I added my banner to my life saver and added some foam on the back and also added a glue dot to help with the end pieces.
