"Timely" Birthday (masculine)

This masculine birthday card took me some time to figure out, based on the Day 3 sketch of CPS ( I'm always uncomfortable putting anything at an angle!!!  I didn't have the scalloped die that would have copied the sketch so I stuck to the standard card shape.

Stamps used:
Boat: Enjoy the Sunshine (GinaK Designs)
Sentiment: Whimsical Wishes (GKD)

Materials used:
Background DP: Webster's Pages Trendsetter "Ladies/Gents"
Sails: Scrap paper
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Broken China
Memento Tuxedo Black
Fabscraps bronze pearls
Tim Holtz distress paper

Tools used:
Small circle punch (only used it on the corner to create the inverted corner effect on the sentiment)
Corner rounder (on main image panel)
Tonic paper trimmer
Foam blender


  1. Great job! I struggle so much with masculine cards and this one is FAB!! Thanks for celebrating our 5th anniversary with us at CPS!

  2. I really like this! I love angles (of course I can never do anything straight so have to go for intentional angles anyway) but it really all works together brilliantly! It actually gives a sense of movement to the yacht.
