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.
