Finished card size is 4.25"x5.5". Cut a piece of teal patterned paper just slightly smaller than that of the card base itself. Cut a black patterned paper just slightly smaller than that of the teal colored background paper. Cut a small strip of teal patterned paper (the same as you used for the background) to place vertically on the side of the card on the patterned black card stock behind where the image will be place. Print off and color digi image. Using a distress ink tool, work some of each the distress inks onto various parts of the image giving it an aged and weathered look. Ink all edges of the image panel using brown ink. Sprinkle some Pumice Stone distress embossing powder to various parts of the card and set using a heat tool. Mat the image onto a plain black cardstock. Die cut the ornate die using a brown patterned paper and a manual die cutting machine. Ink the edges of the die cut using a brown ink. Adhere the ornate die cut to the back of the matted image. Apply washi tape horizontally on the side of the card opposite of where you have applied the strip of teal patterned paper. Adhere image to card using 3D pop dots to create dimension. Die cut the anchor in solid black card stock and adhere over washi tape. Stamp sentiment and ink all edges in brown colored ink. Adhere to card using 3D pop dots on one end and some scor tape on the end that will lay flat against the image. For the finishing touch add some baby blue Stickles to the waves around the lighthouse. You now have a masculine card ready to use for the next occasion you are needing one!
