Anchored with Love

The Nautical theme has made it's comeback and is a hot new trend. With Valentine's Day just a few short weeks away, I figured I'd better get going with my cards. I decided to make hubby's card first. I recently acquired the Quickutz Nautical Embossing Folder set and couldn't wait to use the anchor one. I started by creating a standard card base with kraft cardstock with a red mat on top. After embossing and adhering my white cardstock I began on my embellishments. First I cut the Scallop Heart and Heart using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur. Next, I stamped the sentiment, from the JustRite Stampers Anchor's Away stamp set and added the Silver Heart Nestabling then added the Quickutz Anchor. I thought it needed something more, but since it was a masculine card I was trying to avoid using ribbon. So I went with the Quickutz Rope Border from the Maritime release.
I think my favorite part is the embossing! Here's a closer look at the details...
Another Nautical favorite of mine is navy blue and white stripes with yellow color pop! I may have to do something with that soon! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I'll see you Monday! Photobucket
