You Mean The World

Hello Everyone!  Today the JustRite Team are showcasing one of their first truly masculine sets - You Are My Anchor!  I tell you, I was so excited to see this set, because let's face it, masculine cards are difficult, so this is going to make my life SO much easier!!  :)  I chose to use the globe image because I was just so darn excited to see Australia on there, I just *had* to use it!!!!  :)
Now men don't like frilly cards, so mine is trying to be strong and masculine!  :)  My base is Not Quite Navy, White and Chocolate Chip and then I've used some Kaisercraft Pack Your Bags DP.  Across the bottom I've added another panel of white, Chocolate Chip (punched with the EK Success Dotted Wave punch), some more Pack Your Bags DP and then added some Hemp Twine tied in a Sailors Knot.  My centre and border from You Are My Anchor has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E21, YG93, B21, B23, 0).  I used Large Circle Nestabilies to cut it out and then used some Chocolate Chip cut with Fancy Tags 3 to frame it and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I simply added a few silver pearls to the top corner.

I know what you mean Kathy. Those masculine cards get me every time. This stamp set is pure perfection to make a masculine card a little easier to put together like you have with your card. What a wonderful job. Take care my friend!
