Nautical Birthday

Today's card is for a friend to give to her brother - she requested a nautical theme but something modern.


I chose a red white and blue colour theme and kept it simple...

The patterned paper is from a nautical pad from The Range, and the embossing folder and dies are unbranded, though the dies are very similar to the SU Swirly Bird dies.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Crafty Catz #423 - wet or dry embossing
Crafting With Friends - anything goes
Shopping Our Stash #360 - anything goes
Simply Papercraft #59 - anything goes
Seize The Birthday - anything goes
As You Like It - favourite type of embossing - wet or dry? Definitely dry. I don't do rubber stamping so I haven't even tried wet embossing but I love the quickness of using an embossing folder and the perfect results every time.

Thanks for visiting
