You Float My Boat, FMS273


Hi everyone! I have clean and simple masculine Valentine for you today. This card will be for hubby who is a former boat owner and lover of the sea. Nothing frilly for him! The stamps and waves dies are from Simon Says Stamp. The sailboat and heart were cut out by hand, and since I didn't have the sentiment I wanted I just printed one off my PC. I hope he likes it! 



My inspiration was this fabulous layout by Karren at Freshly Made Sketches. I hope you can see the sketch in my card. The layers of waves are the horizontal elements. I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is The Color of Love.



Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Sailing (Simon Says Stamp)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Sea Glass, Audrey Blue, Black (Simon Says Stamp)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Splashy Waves Die (Simon Says Stamp), Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn)


Have an awesome weekend!
