A Male card

Hi friends!

I'm just getting back from vacation but wanted to quick pop in and share a card. I needed a card for some men and those can be tricky. You don't want tons of embellishments and they can't be too girly so I went with a nautical theme. Here's my card:

The stamp (Lawn Fawn's "Float My Boat") was perfect for a clean and simple look. I began by heat embossing some chevron lines. I knew that would give it some added texture and interest. Then, I die cut some stitched circles and added some white lines right along the stitching of the red circle. Then, I stamped the anchor and added a brad (remember when those were used?!). The brad is perfect for this card. It's not too flashy yet does add some "bling". I popped up the anchor so that it had some added dimension. The sentiment is on the inside and it simply says "you are my anchor". Simple card but I tend to keep things simple for male cards.

I'm entering this card into several challenges:
Word Art Wednesday--Anything Goes
Lawnscaping Challenge--Embossing challenge
Just Add Ink--Create a Male Card

Have a great week, everyone, and thanks for stopping by!
