Ahoy Matey!

Vicki here...Today, I'm sending you "Oceans of Love".  With Father's Day just a few weeks away, I have been working on cards for the fathers and father figures in our family.

Nautical themes are everywhere now and certainly make me think of the guys in my life.  I received the fabulous Lifestyle Crafts/QuicKutz Nautical embossing folder set recently and I couldn't wait to use it.  There are two embossing folders, one with anchors and one with stripes.

Are these anchors so awesome or what?

 "Oceans of Love".

I used both embossing folders on my card.  The blue background cardstock is embossed with the anchor embossing folder.  I love these mini anchors!  The next layer was embossed with the striped folder and used between the stamped image and the embossed background.

The sailboat image and sentiment were stamped using the Vintage Beach Babes Stamp Plate from Rogue Redhead Designs and Tsukineko Memento Rich Cocoa Ink.

I tied a square knot is a piece of twine and tied it around the sentiment banner.
 The lower left corner of the image layer is punched with Just Imagine Kreaxions #310, 4 in 1 punch.  I love that it looks like a splash of water.
