Open Sea Birthday Card

Here is a card I made for one of my grandson's. I like the Open Sea stamp set and I hope he likes what I came up with.

Card Stock                             Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Stamp Sets                             The Open Sea and Itty Bitty Banners
Ink                                          Soft Suede
Stampin Up Markers              Pacific Point
Punch                                      21/2 inch Circle Punch
Framelit                                   Itty Bitty Banner
Accessories                             Stampin Up Circle Cutter

I cut a piece of Pacific Point 51/2 x 41/4 for the base card, then 51/4 x 4 for the next layer I used Soft Suede. Then cut a piece of Very Vanilla 5 x 33/4   and stamped world stamp, compass and anchor all over it.
Then I stamped a piece of Pacific Point 31/2 x 21/2 and tore the edges
Next I stamped shipping log onto a piece of Very Vanilla 31/4 x 21/4  in Soft Suede and tore the edges.
I stamped Happy Birthday with Soft Suede and cut it out using framelit and put aside, same with the anchor except I trimmed around it.
Next I stamped the ship on Very Vanilla card stock with Soft Suede and using my Pacific Point marker colored under the ship to make the sea. Then I punched it out using the 2 1/2 inch Circle punch.
Last using the Circle Cutter I cut a piece of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede to make the Port Holes. I was going to put brads on the Port Holes to make it look more realistic, but ran out of time before my sis had to leave for convention, where it was being mailed from. Sorry Mark!

I hope you enjoyed my project today and leave me a comment below. Thanks for stopping by.
