Ok, so this card doesn’t have to be just for the guys, but I was inspired by a version of this card from my Stamping Twin Julie Davison and had to recreate it for my Stamping Bingo the other week as a card they could make for guys or girls.
My biggest problem is that every time I pull out this Maritime paper, I fall in love with it all over again! From the awesome colors to the fun patterns. Seriously, great paper!
So this card gives a nod to the nautical and is quick and easy and another great way to use that pattern paper!

Tips for making this card:
- Use up scraps of your paper or just make a stack of cards using your patterned papers when you cut a few squares and adhere them in a pattern on your card.
- Add your sentiment instead of another piece of paper! This works with any pattern of shapes. Try it with circles, hexagons, etc… just make a pattern with paper, then lift one up and stamp a sentiment instead.
- Love your twine! I love this gold twine and I used 3 pieces that were wrapped and adhered around the back of the white cardstock to make the crossing pattern. Then add one more piece to tie in a knot at the cross point to hold them together. A little bit o glitz goes a long way!
- Don’t be afraid to cut out specific patterns and pieces from your designer paper too for accent pieces. I cut the light blue “rope” design out as an accent for my Thank You.
