Stampin' Up!'s The Open Sea Stamp Set

This is a card from a workshop last weekend which uses the Herringbone technique which I showed you last week.  It uses the Nautical DSP which is now retired but I just love it and it works so well with the stamp set, The Open Sea which is still available.

Here's what you will need to make this card:
  • The Open Sea Stamp Set
  • Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
  • Classic Inks:  Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler & Soft Suede for aging
  • Houndstooth Embossing Folder, Sanding Block, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine & Gold Brads

 Here's the inside of the card.  Most of the images were stamped after stamping off once - except for the compass rose.  The sentiment comes from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set.  I love this stamp for masculine cards!  I am going to really miss it when it retires at the end of May.  If you want to get this stamp set, contact me about scheduling a workshop since it is a hostess set and cannot be purchased.
