Sunday Stamps has a fun sketch challenge today.
I decided to pull out a couple of my newest Stampin' Up! stamp sets that I haven't had a chance to play with yet. The combination makes for a real masculine card that I believe my husband will appreciate. He likes nautical themes even more than I do.
At first glance it may seem that my card does not fit the sketch because the sketch has 4 panels at the bottom. But if you look closely you will see that there are indeed 4 panels on the bottom of this card. I used Early Espresso card stock on two panels and embossed them with Tempting Turquoise embossing powder. The other two panels are Tempting Turquoise card stock embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder. Now do you see it? ☺ It looks a bit like the weathered boards on an ocean-side cottage.
