Masculine Birthday - Asian Themed

Hello crafting friends and welcome back.  Lena here today to share a masculine birthday card with a little Oriental flair.

I love the way it came out and it was so easy to put together.  Let me show you how.

I began by taking a piece of cardstock and planning out how I wanted my dies to look the Oriental scene.  Next I used a piece of washi tape and masked off the card, about a 1/3 of the way down.  Then, using Memento's Summer Sky ink, I sponged in the sky. Next, using Memento's Teal Zeal ink, I sponged in the sea.  I made little white squiggles with a white signo pen to give it the appearance of little crests on the otherwise very calm sea :-)

Next I used the Oriental Frame from Amy Design and cut the frame for my scene.  Since this is a solid background die, and I only wanted the frame, I used a craft knife and cut out the center piece.  You can also trace the die onto a piece of paper, scan it and upload it to an electronic cutting machine and let the machine cut it for you.  After cutting out a few more details, and colouring them with copic markers, such as the Junk Boat from Frantic Stamperand the Puffy Clouds from Memory Box, I assembled my scene. All that was left was to add a few seagulls from a Hero Arts Stamp set.

Oh, I almost forgot, I cut out a second frame to use on the inside of the card.

Here is a quick recap of the materials I used to make this card with links to the Dies R Us Store, for your convenience.
