Summer Mini - The Open Sea

If you are after a masculine stamp set, The Open Sea in the Summer Mini is a beauty.  I have been having a play with it over the past few days.  I saw a design similar to this over at Splitcoast.  I love simple and clean designs, especially for male cards.

The sample I saw used a different background embossing folder but I liked the effect of the stripes - sort of like wooden planks.  I have used mini brads around the port hole frame - just the right size.

There is a co-ordinating DSP for this set also.  I'll show you a card using the DSP in my next post!

Stamps:  The Open Sea
Card:  Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Early Espresso
Tools:  1 3/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Paper Piercer, Big Shot!, Stripes Textured Embossing Folder
Accessories:  Mini Brads

Thanks for stopping by!
