I created today’s card to play along with the Global Design Project sketch chalenge.  It is GDP226.  I am being a bit different and going to show you the sketch first.  The sketches do not have to be followed exactly.  What I did is another older technique that as usual I had not used in many years.

And here is my version of the sketch challenge.



To say my card is different is that I took a solid stamped layer and cut it into equal parts.  The design team for this challenge mostly used individual stampings on each of the layers.  The method I chose is one that was used quite often back when I first started stamping.

This stamp set is perfect for masculine cards, or anyone who loves to fish.  There are more women than you probably think that are avid fishermen (fisherperson!)  It is the new By The Dock stamp set. I stamped the pieces in different colors that matched that item.  I then used Stampin’ Blends to color them appropriately.

The ribbon and sentiment are ones I was thrilled with the results.  The ribbon is the Braided Linen Trim.  I did not tie a bow or a regular little knot.  I looped it around, except upside down, like you would for a tag or bookmark.  I wanted the tails down and it took me a minute to figure out how to do it upside down! LOL!!

The sentiment is from the By the Dock stamp set.  I stamped it onto Sahara Sand card stock and then die cut it using a die from the Painted Labels Dies.  I truly hope this die set carries over after the Mini Catalog.  They are perfect for sentiments.

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for another idea before the weekend.
