Nautical Birthday

Red, white and blue is always a popular combination around the 4th of July!  And right now the nautical theme is very on trend.  That's where the inspiration for this card came.

Using the compass image from The Open Sea stamp set, I clear stamped multiple times and clear embossed onto Night of Navy cardstock. I cut 3/4" x 4"strips of the Night of Navy cardstock and adhered them to a 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White piece of cardstock.  This panel is attached to the Crumb Cake base card.

The anchor from The Open Sea is stamped in Real Red and layered with Real Red cut with the Circles Framelits.  Some linen thread was added behind it and a silver slimmer star was added.  My first go with this card did not include the embossed compasses, but I think they add a nice texture and depth to the card without overpowering the main anchor image.
