Nautical Father's Day

I want to wish all the dads a very Happy Father's Day!


My card for the occasion is nautical.  I stamped the two seahorses in grey ink and filled them in with a light blue marker.  I sponged the edges of the patterned paper with ink and added a navy mat.


I stamped and fussy cut a shell on more patterned paper to use as an embellishment, along with a brad and some enamel dots.  


The striped paper in the background was altered to add the ship wheel stamping.  I really especially like that detail, subtle as it is.

Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Beach Unmounted sheet, Happy Father's Day, Versafine Smokey Grey ink, Distress ink Tumbled Glass, Tombow water-based markers, My Mind's Eye brad and enamel dots, various patterned paper scraps (probably all My Mind's Eye)

Thanks so much for spending some time with me today!  Hope you have time for creativity today!

  1. A great card for Father's Day Heidi! I struggle with masculine cards, but this one has just the right balance, soft, yet remaining masculine through the choice of patterns and fresh colours! I hope you are having a lovely Sunday! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx
