The Open Sea - FMS81 - SUOC68

For this fun masculine birthday card I stamped the ship log twice side by side using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the background.

1 Challenge: The Freshly Made Sketch (FMS81) was for the layout and the SU! Only Challenge (SUOC68) required using only one color along with a neutral if necessary.

  • Stamp Sets: The Open Sea, Wacky Wishes (Hostess)
  • Colors: Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy 
  • Punches: 1" Square (for flag)
  • Embellishments: Metallic Brads
  • Big Shot: Circles #2 Die
  • Tools: Stampin' Sponges, Stamp-a-ma-jig R, Paper-Piercing Tool
