The Spot Challenge #164 - Let's Hear it for the Boys! Masculine Card Challenge with Sailing Home

 Hello and Happy Tuesday!! I hope you were able to enjoy a wonderful weekend for sunny weather and time with family!  Since it is Tuesday, it is time for another Creative Challenge over at The Spot!  This week it is all about Masculine Cards!  I hope you'll stop by and check it out!

I just realized that I have hardly played around with the Sailing Home stamp set.  It is perfect for masculine cards!  I did a little #simplestamping to make this card and I love how it turned out.  

I went with a landscape gatefold base of Balmy Blue and layered with Night of Navy and the Plaid Balmy Blue DSP from the Subtles 6"x 6" DSP Assortment.  The center panel is Basic White matted with Night of Navy.  Using Balmy Blue ink, I stamped the birds and the compass.  I added the Thanks in Night of Navy Ink as well as the boat that was stamped over the compass.  I ran some of the White Baker's Twine along the right side of the front panel twice and tied it in a bow towards the top.  I frayed the ends of the twine just a bit.  

Here's how I finished the inside...

 I matted the Basic White inside panel on Night of Navy.  I used Balmy Blue Ink to stamp the compass on the lower right corner and Night of Navy Ink to stamp the Lighthouse over it.

Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
