Sail Away Masculine Birthday Card

My customers always say it is hard to come up with a masculine birthday card.  My answer to them?  All you need is the perfect stamp.  I used the now retired "Sail Away" stamp and the Direct to Paper technique for this one.

To do the Direct To Paper Technique, all you do is hold your open ink pad upside down and put it on the paper.  Gently move the pad around while maintaining gentle contact to the paper. The new Stampin' Up! ink pads make a very different pattern on the cardstock than the old ones did.  I used Bashful Blue on the top and Pool Party on the bottom. Try it yourself and see what you can come up with.
Some of you may know we are sailers at heart.  Here is a picture of our boat "Maraya" ...
Last summer we actually got to use the sails a few days while out on our annual sailing vacation.  I sure wish summer would hurry up so we can have more adventures on Maraya.  This summer our oldest Grandson, James will be old enough to come out with us!  Whoo hoooo.
Happy Stampin' .....
