Stampin' Up! Sail Away and I create masculine birthday cards

One of the stamps in Stampin' Up!'s Winter Mini Catalogue really appealed to me. It is an A la Carte stamp, (single stamp), Sail Away, and at only $14.95, I just had to add it to my collection
It actually arrived in my order on Thursday, but I hadn't had a chance to play with it... So, this morning, between coffees, I whipped up this one layered card. I have used the Sail Away stamp, and my Stampin' Up! Chalks, in So Saffron, retired colours Brocade Blue, Brilliant Blue and Taken with Teal. I love my Stampin' Up! Chalks to create really nice blended back grounds. I find with male cards, it is best to keep the design minimalist, so, I have left this card fairly plain. The sentiment is from Trendy Trees which has the cutest plain sayings. 
If you would like any of the items from the Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue, please, do not hesitate to send me an email or call me on 0405 173 237
Until next time, Happy Stamping!
