RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour: By The Tide

Hello!  I was so happy to see this new stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  We travel to Maine each summer, and I just love the lobster image in this set.     

By The Tide
#129117, $27.95 Wood Mount
#129120, $19.95 Clear Mount
These images are perfect for "masculine cards" so I used it for this Father's Day gift card holder.  I got the idea from a recent Card Maker magazine, and I changed it up just a little to give it a nautical look. 

The Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine was used to tie a bow
 around the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon,

I stamped the images on a 7 x 2 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock,
then cut it at 2" and 2 1/2" to get the three pieces to layer onto Night of Navy.

This is perfect for a gift card to my hubby's favorite place for a coffee!

Here are the supplies I used for this Gift Card Holder:
