Steampunk Masculine Card—Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #18

The theme this week for our challenge #18 at Cardz 4 Guyz is "Nautical". I decided to give my card a steampunk look using Papermania Chronology paper and a ship image from Dover 2000 Early Advertising Cuts.

I just bought the die for the center emblem over the weekend and had to try it out. I haven't put a sentiment on the front of this card because I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for—Birthday? Father's Day? Get Well?—it would work for any of them. When I decide I'll do something on the inside to suit.

Paper—Papermania Chronology 6 x 6" paper pack, cardstock
Topper—Dover 2000 Early Advertising Cuts
Dies—Die-namics photo corners, CArt-Us center emblems
Embellishments—ribbon, button, twine
