I started with a base of SU! Kraft, followed by a slice of green, leafy G45 paper. My next layer is a piece from an old Rand McNally map (thanks Lisa!!).
I used a scrap of SU! DP (blueberry crisp?) as my stamping base. I used one of their newer sets called Always. I loved the flourish. It's a pre-trimmed rubber stamp that mounts to an acrylic block. Totally awesome. And it inks up beautifully. I colored it in here and there just to add a bit of dimension.
I backed this panel with the flipside in the darker blue. I stitched all of my layers and began to adhere. I grabbed a raw chipboard bracket, coated it in my Colorbox Harbor Blue ink, thick embossing powder and heat set. I used a smidge of twine to tie around the bracket and there you have it.
A simple and elegant yet masculine card.
I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired!
