Today I am participating in a blog hop with the  Try Stampin’ on Tuesday website. The theme is masculine cards. Aren’t we always looking for great cards for men? This is sometimes hard when we survey our stamp sets and see LOTS of flowers! But, I think you will be really happy when you see all of the cards in this hop. Here’s my entry. You’ll see, lots of Tranquil Tide!

Here is a list of other stops along the Hop. (Some may not be live until later today, Monday, May 28.) I hope you will visit the other stampers and see what they have prepared. I know you will get lots of great ideas!

Design Notes for Tranquil Tide Card:

To be honest, this is one of the easiest cards I’ve made in a long time! The background is not stamped. It is a piece of the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper. I cut two pieces of card stock, one Fresh Fig (1 1/2″) and one Tranquil Tide (2″) and used the Triple Banner Punch to add the flags at the end. The sentiment, from the new  Detailed with Love stamp set, is stamped with Tranquil Tide ink and also flagged with the Triple Banner Punch. The final touch was to wrap a piece of Burlap Ribbon around the card front pieces and tie it with a strand of the burlap. That’s about it!
