Nautical Masculine Birthday

Hi everyone! Here is a card I recently did for a Victorine Originals Birthday challenge.

I did a lot of experimenting and playing around with this one. The back ground is created using the rope stamp from the nautical set from VO. I stamped it in Palette fresh snow, heat embossed it with clear embossing powder and then used the vintage photo distress ink to distress the kraft card stock a bit more.

The tag and the left strip are created using Post-it note tape and vintage photo distress ink. I've been seeing all these rolls of washi tape on Pinterest and even some DIY versions and started playing around.

To create the tag I put three strips of the Post-it Note tape on a piece of cardstock and distressed it with the vintage photo using the sponge applicator. I then ran it through the CB and cut out the tag using the die from Quickutz. It sort of looks like wood! I recycled the "rope" from a Life is Good Tag that I had saved and tied some knots into it and attached it to the left panel.

The circle's are cut out using the spellbinders dies and the Birthday sentiment is from Hero Arts.

There are challenges going on over at the Victorine Blog every two weeks where you can enter for a chance to win VO stamps. The new challenge is summertime and starts tomorrow! Thanks for stopping in!
