May Arts/UmWow/Avery Elle Blog Week - Day 5 - My turn!

It's Day 5 and the final day of a fabulous week of inspiration by Design Teams from May Arts, Avery Elle and Um Wow.  You'll find the full May Arts Hop List below in case you missed anyone.

I love the way this Clean and Simple card turned out.  I think this would be a great card for Father's Day or a masculine birthday/encouragement/anniversary card.   Love that versatility!

I began by misting these great stars by Um Wow (you get tons of stars and star silhouettes in one package!) with Memories Mists Blue Lagoon.  I sprayed one large star with spray adhesive then sprinkled it with glass glitter.  Let everything dry.

After the stars were dry, I just stamped the compass image from Avery Elle's Knotty set in Imagine Crafts Tsukineko Staz-on Blue Hawaii ink onto Solar white cardstock.  I cut the circles with Spellbinders Circle dies from Stampin' Up Navy, Bazzill metallic cardstock as well.  The compass circle is popped up with  foam squares by Scrapbook Adhesives.

I stamped my sentiment from the Avery Elle Knotty set then tied a figure 8 knot (animated knots) with May Arts SP10 1/8" Burlap Cord.  I used two pieces of the cording for extra width.  I love the beachy natural texture it adds to the card.

The card front is popped up with more Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares so that the cord can be secured on the back.  

There are prizes up for grabs, so please be sure to stop by the May Arts Blog for more details. The giveaway is 3 prize packs of:
  • 1 Stamp Set
  • 1 roll of ribbon
  • 1 mask, flair set & layered chipboard set
To enter post a comment on each of the MA/UWS/AE blogs. Here's the complete hop list I promised you so you don't miss out!
