This is the last masculine thank you card created using Gina K. Designs Time to Coast. I am always looking for good images to use on masculine cards and when I saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it.
The image was stamped on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and colored with ZIG Real Brush Markers. I wanted to create a continuous image frame and pulled out the Ellen Hutson Essential Rectangles. I love these dies. It cuts the rectangle, but also a thin frame. I used two different sizes and cut down the image. I also used the same sizes to cut frames from turquoise cardstock. The outer frames were adhered directly to a top folding A2 cardstock with liquid glue. The center focal image was adhered using Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape for a little dimension.
I felt like it needed a little more something and decided to add some puffy clouds cut using the Avery Elle Pierced Clouds dies. Not sure I a love it, but it was done and I didn't hate it.
