This card was inspired by the Paper Players sketch #201. I wamted to use the Sea Street stamp set to create a masculine card, and I decided to combine it with the Work of Art stamp set to create the background. I stamped the brushstroke image in alternating colors (Real Red and Marina Mist) then added the flag image and the rope image in Night of Navy on top. I matted the strip with Night of Navy cardstock and added it to my Marina Mist cardbase on which I stamped the Hardwood background stamp in Night of Navy.
I wanted this card to have a Father's Day sentiment on it, so I had to reach for an older retired set to have something of a substantial size that would work for my design. I inked the stamp with Stampin' Write markers, stamped it on White cardstock, rounded the corners with a punch and I added a piece of Real Red cardstock die-cut with the Window Frames Collection Framelits dies underneath. I added a red Sweet Dot to the letter O.
The first pennant at top was created by stamping the anchor image in VersaMark on Real Red cardstock and embossing the image with White Stampin' Emboss powder. I then used the pennant from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits dies and matted the die-cut with White cardstock. The second pennant was die-cut with the Pennants Framelits dies and embossed with the Arrows embossing folder, then matted with Marina Mist cardstock. It was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals and I added two Marina Mist Sweet Dots in the center of the arrows.
A white medium envelope was stamped to match.
