Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 67 For The Boys

Sally has set the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time and she would like you to make a male themed project.  This could be for a big boy, a little boy or a baby boy, so long as it's male themed.
We have two great sponsors again this month.  One Stop Card Crafts are offering a £10 voucher for their shop and Digi Doodle Shop are offering a $10 voucher.








My male themed  easel card is for my brother.  I used a set of stamps that I have had for ages but have never seen ink before (hangs head in shame, lol).  They are from Aspects of Design (Nautical).  I inked the ship stamp and the sentiment with Stampin' Up Night of Navy and the map stamp in SU Basic Grey.  The images were then matted onto grey card and I hand cut around the edge, adding an extra layer of blue card to the ship image.  The bg paper is from a favourite pad of mine - Basic Grey Boxer (the actual sheet is called Buckle) and I added a zig-zag from the accompanying sticker sheet although you can hardly see it.  Next I added some flourishes (Sizzix) as I thought they looked like waves, some imaginisce i-rock gems to hold the easel card open and finally a little ships wheel charm.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Hi Jack, your card looks very masculine, especially in that navy blue shade. Love the easel design and the nautical stamps. I am the same, have had some stamps for yonks and never inked them up, we are a shameful lot, lol. coB
