Ahoy... it's your birthday!

Hi there!

Always happy when I find inspiration for making a masculine card! They can be so much fun to make :)

Nautical - masculine birthday card

Nautical - masculine birthday card

I used :

  • Background technique from Channin. Ever since I saw THIS video I wanted to try it. Finally did... Yay... and thank you so much Channin!
  • Distress oxide inks : Iced spruce and Salty ocean
  • Sentiment cut with my Silhouette cameo ( Font - Atlantic Cruise . I replaced the 'o' with a ship steering wheel )
  • Stamped sentiment from Simon : Big birthday wishes
  • Rectangle pin point die from Memory Box
  • Enamel dots
  • Craft foam for dimension

Sharing my card at :

Time out challenges : Used the nautical elements and colors of the photo as inspiration and tried to recreate the 'weathered' look of the table in my background.

oh I do love to see on photo challenges what inspired different elements of the card-I so missed the weathered look on the table but love you picked up on it-super spot! That background looks amazing and also find it fab you included the tiny bit of blue in the photo and incorporated this-super take on our photo and as also a joy to see you at Time Out

What an awesome backround, Hannelie ... it captures the weathered look and pops of blue beautifully! Love the sentiment with the ship's wheel as the 'O' ... so clever! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

Glad you tried it because it looks awesome with your die cut and it is fun to take the ink pad direct to paper! Really fun project created! You will have to make more! Thanks for sharing this week over at The Paper Players!

I love how you ran with the inspiration from all these different sources. The background is fabulous and the colors work so well together. The "ahoy"... well, the ship's wheel takes it over the top!

I checked out the video on how to create the background, and it looks like a lot of fun. I'll have to give it a try sometime. So many techniques, so little time! Love your masculine card. It would work especially well for someone who likes to be on the water.
