On the third Thursday of each month, I hold my Technique Lover’s Class and we make three different cards or projects using the same technique. In January, we learned the Faux Silk technique, and this is one of the cards we made. We started by taking a piece of white tissue paper (the stuff you use for gift wrapping). We inked the Chart stamp from Stampin’ Up’s The Open Sea in Sahara Sand and stamped it on the tissue paper twice. Then we stamped the Ship image in Midnight muse. Next, we crumpled the stamped piece into a tiny little wad – fun! Carefully opening the paper back up, we adhered it to a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock that was completely coated with Anywhere Glue Stick. A little Washi Tape around the edges and some mini brads completed the framed look.
Here’s a closer look at the Faux Silk panel:
The Open Sea is one of my favorite go-to sets for creating those masculine cards. It can be used for so many occasions! Head on over to my online store and add this one to your library – you won’t regret it!
