Simply Sail Away

100_3271     With Father’s Day in a couple of days, I have found myself reaching for this new stamp set often.  Sail Away is a lovely line art stamp that can be used in a variety of ways.  I showed this card at a recent workshop so I wanted to keep it super simple.  I stamped the image off center in Early Espresso.  The sentiment is found in the Hostess Level 1 set, Afterthoughts and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I’m going to miss this set once it retires on June 30th. :(  The DSP is the lovely and very masculine Nautical Expedition paper in the Summer Mini Catalog.  The Early Espresso/White Baker’s Twine can be found in the same catty.  I Scallop Border punched a strip of Early Espresso card stock to off set the DSP as well.  The card base is 4.25” square in Naturals White.  I made a coordinating modified envelope to go along with the card.  You can see how I did that in this post, Scalloped Circle Card w/ Envelope.

     Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to make a quick masculine card and let the men in your life know just how much they are loved and appreciated!  :)
