As you've heard me mention before I find male cards a bit difficult but since I discovered this great stamp from Impression Obsession - 'Map' I've had a light bulb moment and made quite a few cards. Some for birthdays and some for Father's Day, which won't be long - 15th June - the rate at which this year is flying by.
Here is the birthday one and I will share the Father's Day card tomorrow,
6 x 6 card blank
Map stamp - Impression Obsession
Ship stamp - Habico Vintage Transport
Paper twine - Tim Holtz
Wave die cut - La La Land
Label die cuts - MFT Die-namics - layered labels
Lighthouse charm from stash
I inked the white cardstock with a mixture of Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks and then when dry I stamped the Map over the top and embossed it with black detail embossing powder. The wave die cut was inked with the same three colours to match and so were the labels layers. I then embossed the Ship stamp in exactly the same way as the map. Added two lengths of TH paper twine and a bronze charm from my stash which I mounted on to the circle mats.
