Out of This World

Today was a fabulous mail day over here! My Unity Stamp collection just grew by about 1,000%.... happy dancing all day long!

In honor of the Memorial Day weekend, the ladies over at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge are hosting a red, white, and blue challenge. I inked up some newbies to play along.

3 1/2" x 5 1/2" cards are my new go-to size. Now whenever I make an A2 size card it just looks... fat.

I created a messy mask to place on the card before stamping the argyle background. Then I stamped the world in the empty space. The sentiment was embossed in red. So that makes this card ONE LAYER!

The sentiment is from the new Simon Says Stamp June card kit. It's by Kelly Purkey and is called "Dude!" which has a lot of great Father's Day themed sentiments.

This card can easily work for Father's Day, but is also great for an everyday card for both men and women.

Stamps: Unity Stamp Co "Out of This World", Kelly Purkey "Dude!", Market Street Stamps "Argyle"
Inks: Versamagic Chalk ink "Sea Breeze", Memento "Tuxedo Black", Versamark Watermark pad
Copic marker R29, BG23, B45, and red embossing powder

And now I cross my fingers for a thunder storm
