On The Waterfront for Manly Monday

Oh, were you thinking of the classic movie, “On the Waterfront”? Sorry. I used the stamp set, Waterfront for today’s card. I think it is one of the most beautiful sets in the annual catalog and perfect for any kind of card.

Design Notes for Waterfront Card:

Does this card look a bit familiar? I created it while I was writing up the post for last Friday. You would have seen it if you opened up the tutorial for Easel Card. I hope you did. If not, you can look at the tutorial here, Tutorial for Easel Card – Portrait.

The colors I used are definitely autumnal but you can imagine that these stamps could work with summer or even winter themes. I used some of the Wood Textures Designer Paper for the inside part of the card and one mat on the front. Wood Texture adds a definite manly vibe and in this case, a fall one too. You can see it better here.

When I was just about finished, I saw a piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Paper that was just the right size to decorate the envelope flap! It seems to be my new thing.

I also used some of the very fun Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes. The most fun, however, was created the pointsetta wreath with the Stamparatus. If you want to learn more about using the Stamparatus to create a wreath, just check out my video, here. The final touches were to add some Wink of Stella to the flowers then finally, to add a Polka Dot Tulle bow to the wreath.
