Ocean and Waves

This card I made for my Dad for Father's day for this year. I am a little early I know, but I have lots to do in the coming month so thought it best to make sure it was done. I used a Kanban stamp and used a Tim Holtz ink pad to stamp it out so I could just highlight the outlines of the image.I then cut two shapes, one of which I embossed using one of my embossing folders and inked around the edges to add more colour. I placed the larger shape onto a card which I had layered with some backing paper I got from one of my many crafting cd's. I then placed the circle shape over the stamped image and placed it onto the card using foam pads. To finish off I used some card candi and a sentiment. I have entered this card in the Cards for men challenge


  1. Love the layout of your card Shiela. Welcome to the world of blogging. You are now where I was a couple of months ago. I warn you it gets to be addictive.
    Good luck in the challenge
