Ink. Stamp. Share May Special Blog Hop Anything Goes

It's time to hop along with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Special May Blog Hop as we share ideas and projects to help inspire your creativity. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects. Let the fun begin.
 Today I decided to share a card that has no stamping. Shocking but true. I decided to use the retiring Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack (item #149552) with the coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (item #149481) which is also retiring. I love that I was able to make this beautiful Father's Day card with just a few simple supplies. 
 To create this card, I started with an Early Espresso cardstock card base and I added a layer of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to create the background. I cut a piece of 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" Early Espresso cardstock to create a matte for the 3" x 4" card from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack. There are so many wonderful designs in this card pack, that it was really hard to choose just one. 
To decorate the card front, I cut a piece of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon (item #141487) the width of the card and attached it to the card front using Snail Adhesive. Next, I attached the focal image to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals, making sure to center it over the ribbon. 

 To complete the card design, I added four of the Basic Pearls, that I colored using the Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blends Marker, one in each corner of the Memories & More card design. I just love how it completes the design without being too over the top. The designs in the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack are perfect for creating masculine cards for all occasions and the coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper provides so many wonderful possibilities for creating projects. Both of these products are only available while supplies last or until June 2nd. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to get creative during these challenging time. It's amazing what a difference a little creative therapy can do to help brighten your day.
