Hi everyone. Welcome back to Manly Monday late edition. I took a fall on Monday and was forced to go to bed instead of doing my post. I'm OK. I just tripped over the dog and he's OK too. So I have 4 manly cards to share from blogland and I hope you will stop by their blogs and leave them a comment. Who doesn't love comments I always say. Have fun and check out my card at the bottom when you are finished.
For my card:
I love the Open Seas stamp set by Stampin Up for manly cards. I made one here Open Seas for a Manly Monday post a few months back and wanted to share the other one I made at the same time.
I cut the sentiment out using my Cricut. In fact it was a left over from the previous year's calendar making that I do for family. It was the backside of a patterned paper that was very old and I inked the edges. The frame is stamped and heat embossed with the ledger stamp in the set. The ink is Versa Mark and the gold embossing powder by Stamp N Plus. The card base is by Recollections and I've distressed the edges with distress ink by Ranger and sprayed it with water. The boat image was stamped with Versa Color ink and after it dried I die cut it out with a Design Objectives die cut and inked the inside with distress ink before taking the paper out of the die. Then I put all the pieces together to make my card.
Thanks for looking.
