The Squirrel and The Fox #49

Nautical or Sea Life
That's our new challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox and I'm using a nautical image from our sponsor Oak Pond Creations. I did not add a sentiment because I'll save this one in my stash for the next time I need a masculine card. Hence, I kept it pretty CAS and chose to add a bit of drama with my embossed background, stamped text, and by adding dimension. I printed the image out twice and cut the anchor out and adhered it to the panel, next I cut from the second image the rope and conch shell. I paper pieced the rope after coloring it to add depth and popped the shell up on 3D foam dots. A ribbon banner was created with a Spellbinders banner die which I die cut twice to give me the length I needed for this card. The embossed background was highlighted with antique linen distress ink and pearls accent the corners.
Prize is 3 free digi stamps of winner's choice.
Hope you enjoy this challenge and for more inspiration please check out the DT creations by my teamies HERE or click their links on my right sidebar. Thanks for stopping by today!

Wonderful idea to fussy cut and give this card depth. I'm with you about Sentiments. That is the last thing I add to a card as well. You never know what occasion you might use it for, right? Beautiful design and coloring and I just love the embossing. Simply lovely! Hugs and happy crafting! -Kim
