Life on the Ocean Wave

Hello Everyone

More from the new Summer Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up! today. I was so happy to get the stamp set called The Open Sea that I have used in this project. It is perfect for a man card and also lovely for creating a distressed look like the one below.

All the images are from the stamp set and the greeting is from Party this Way and the scrap of DSP is from First Edition Speciality Designer Paper.

Do you see the scoring down one side and along the bottom - this is done with another new and fabby tool called Simply Scored. More about that coming soon.

Love Elizabeth X


  1. Gorgeous card Elizabeth, makes me wish I'd ordered the Open Sea set now, great texture, and even though purple wouldn't be my first choice for a men's card I think it works really well!
    Thanks for joining us this week at Simply Stampin,
    don't forget to be considered for the Top 3 you need to add a link back to the challenge so others know how to get to us.

  2. What a great masculine card!!!! I love the purple! So unexpected!!

  3. I'm lovin' the purple Elizabeth! Kelly's right....I never would think to use this color with masculinity but you made it work! I also love the scoring you did....have you figured out the envelope yet?

    TFS your FAB work & have a great rest of the weekend.
    Hugs & Love
