A Sailor Went to Sea, Sea, Sea

The Open Sea, Wainscoting

The Open Sea, Wainscoting

Here are 3 more cards that I made with The Open Sea set from Stampin Up. This is such a rugged nautical set and really helps my cards make a masculine statement. I was surprised how much I liked the first one when I finished it. I was afraid it might look too drab as I was making it, but using the Stampin Up Stripes embossing folder on the bottom reminds me of wainscoting which kind of adds to the masculine theme.

The Open Sea, Clean and Simple

On the second card I used the globe stamp in VersaMark on the blue and the anchor stamp in VersaMark on the red to give a little more character to this clean and simple look. (Unfortunately it is difficult to see in the picture, but if you double-click the picture it shows up better.)

The Open Sea, Chevrons

The chevron paper on the third card reminded me of a choppy sea and I think it goes well with the set. Which one is your favorite?
