The Open Sea Masculine Birthday Card – Stampin’ Up!

I’m posting a little early this morning, I’m off to go volunteer at the Sweet H2O Sweetheart Half Marathon at a park just outside Atlanta.  It’s a trail race and with all of the melting snow, I’m guessing that the runners will be covered from head to toe in mud!  But it will be lots of fun, I’ll try to grab and post some pictures on my Facebook page.  🙂

Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made with The Open Sea stamp set and the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch from Stampin’ Up!  My card design was inspired by the Mojo Monday 332 Sketch.

The Open Sea 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I started by adhering a panel of High Tide DSP to a panel of Pacific Point card stock, then to a Smoky Slate card base with SNAIL.  Next, I cut a strip of High Tide DSP and adhered it to a strip of Pacific Point card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL.

I punched a panel of High Tide DSP and a strip of Pacific Point card stock with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, then adhered them together.  I used the Fringe Scissors to snip a piece of Pacific Point card stock and I adhered it to the bottom of the punched tag with SNAIL.  I pulled a piece of Smoky Slate 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon through the top of the tag and tied it with a small piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine, then adhered the tag to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I stamped the image from The Open Sea stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Pacific Point ink on a panel of Smoky Slate card stock.  I cut it out with one of the dies from the Label Card Thinlits die set and adhered it to a Labels Collection Framelits die cut from Pacific Point card stock.  I adhered the layered die cuts to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals under the left side and SNAIL under the right side.

The Open Sea 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Pacific Point ink on a Soft Sky card stock strip, punched the end with the Hexagon Punch and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I added three of the Basic Metal Buttons, using Glue Dots to adhere them, to finish the card front.

I adhered two leftover strips of High Tide DSP to a Whisper White panel inside the card.  I punched the striped piece of DSP with the Hexagon Punch to create the banner look.
