Happy Birthday Steve

I made this card for my husband's birthday and am entering the Cuttlebug Mania 'Frame It' challenge, Crafty Cardmakers 'For a Man/Boy'challenge, Dies R Us 'Sunshine or Clouds' challenge (I've used both) challenges.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamps: Whale of a Time (magazine freebie)
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Standard Circles Large', Whale of a Time (magazine freebie)
Embossing: Stampendous clear embossing powder
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Red matt and white silk
Other: Computer generated sentiment 'Imprint IT Shadow' font

I stamped the scene onto white card and embossed it with clear embossing powder before colouring it with Promarkers.  I printed the sentiment onto white card and trimmed the card to a square before die cutting a circle above the sentiment.  This panel was then placed over the scene.  I trimmed the lower card so it was slightly smaller than the card with the sentiment before attaching the two and layering them onto red card.  The panel was then attached to the card front.  I die cut a circular frame from red card and attached it around the scene with a few small spots of glue.  I stamped and embossed a sailing boat onto white card and die cut it with the matching die from the set, before attaching it to the waves with Pinflair glue.

It's a wonderful masculine theme, and I love the stained glass effect of the ship, sea and streaming sunshine. I'm sure your DH loved it just as much! TFS & Hugs
