A Nautical Traveler

Today I am playing along with two challenges.  Can You Case It #113 is a color challenge and The Challenge #66 is a masculine photo inspiration….you can see how these two challenges actually go hand in hand.

CYCI113   New Banner-015

The challenge here for me was the masculine card.  These type of cards are a little out of my comfort zone so this was good practice to create one.

Since I really do not own any nautical themed stamp sets, I turned to the steamship in the Traveler stamp set which I stamped in Basic Gray.  The cardstock I used is Soft Suede (I hope that will pass for the Kraft), Night of Navy and Smoky Slate (inside).  The DSP is from the Regals Designer Series Pack.

The inside sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set.  Even if you do not have the Tin of Cards kit, I would recommend buying this stamp set.  The sentiments are so useful and the font is fabulous.  I have used this set so many times and will continue to use them even if they retire…they are that good!

 I’m happy to have this card in my supply and hope that you enjoyed this post.  Thanks for taking the time to check in on my project today.
