You Mean the World to Me.  Yes you really do!

That’s the phrase that I used on this masculine card.

The idea for this card came from a magazine.  I combined the new The Open Sea stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalog with the Word Play stamp set that is on sale this month for 30% off.  They worked well together.

The card base is Early Espresso and it is stamped with the globe and manifest images from The Open Sea stamp set.  Then I added Not Quite Navy and and embossed/torn layer of Crumb Cake.

On top of that is a Whisper White piece stamped with “You Mean the World to me” and sponged to give it an old look.  I wrapped around a piece of the new Baker’s Twine (this one is the Early Espresso) and tied a button through it.

To pop out the “world” – I stamped it on scratch paper in Not Quite Navy and punched it out with the circle punch and popped it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

My envelope was stamped to match.  And on the inside is a panel of Whisper White and the corner of it was also stamped to match.

A very nice masculine card.  I hope you like it!
