Using the gorgeous Fancy Pants Like Father Like Son papers I made this card for my neighbour who was turning 60!! Just love these papers, the blues are gorgeous and are perfect for male/boy cards, even having 2 boys I still struggle sometimes making masculine cards!
When that was dry I added some metallic die cut numbers and 2 altered brads (I used inks and Rock Candy on them too!) and stuck it on the card on top of a piece of frayed muslin.
Number and Phrase Dies, White Gel Pen, Muslin, Adhesive Backed Metal, Sanding Block, Double Sided Tape and Foam Mounting Tape
He loves making a splash!!
I ran a piece of the blue coredinations cardstock thru my sizzix machine and embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder, then sanded it lightly to make the pattern stand out.
While they were drying, I used the leftover board from the sail boat set as a stencil and misted two boats onto the white cardstock using Moonlight glimmermist.
I placed the painted boat shapes just off to the side of the stencilled ones to give a glimmermist shadow effect.
I added a cute little flying bird charm as it reminded me of a seagull.
The ruffled ribbon is a navy blue organza ribbon that I gathered using a machine stitch and zigzag stitched in place to look like water.

I mounted the photo and a Jenni Bowlin Adore Bingo Card onto thick chipboard, sanded the edges and inked the edges.
I then mounted a piece of Sassafras Lass Apple Jack Translate onto thinner chipboard, and layered these over some pieces of Jenni Bowlin Extension Black Micro Dot and Like Father Like Son Big Guy (both sides).
The title is Holly Doodle Alphabet stickers - cubicle that I rubbed with black ink, stuck down then coated with dimensional magic.
I finished off with a large pearl head pin with some ribbon snippets & black lace tied around it and a pair of footy boot charms on a silver jump ring.
