Masculine Birthday Card

The Open Sea Stamp Set has great images for making masculine themed cards.  I used the large ship as the center of my male Happy Birthday Card today, and placing it on a  cut framelit was easy and quick.
My card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock which I embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to give it a more rugged look.  I cut a piece of Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper with my Big Shot using a large Window Frames Framelit.  I then stamped my ship using Midnight Muse Ink and cut it out with a smaller Window Frames Framelit and placed it onto my card using dimensionals.  My Happy Birthday sentiment was sponged with Midnight  Muse Ink to give it a distressed look, the one end cut on an angle and curled, and also placed onto my card with dimensionals.  A simple card, but I think a nice one for a male birthday.
