My die cut nautical anchor and stars project today was made for the Impression Obsession “It’s a Guy Thing” design team challenge to create a masculine card.  I used the Anchor and Stars sets for my clean and simple card. 

Come and see how I made this clean and simple die cut nautical anchor and stars card.

The Anchor and Stars

I cut the anchor in both red and white cardstock.  I trimmed the white rope off and attached the pieces of rope to the red anchor using glossy accents.  The stars were cut using red cardstock. 

The Crimped Layer

Crimpers were a big deal when I first began paper crafting back in 2003.  Although they are not really popular to use any more I still keep mine close at hand in my craft room because I love to use it to add dimension and interest like on my card today.  I cut the white layer, tucked it in my crimper and rolled it through.  I attached it to the red layer using double stick tape and then attached both to the white card base using strips of mounting tape. 

Come and see how I made this fun and simple die cut nautical anchor and stars card.

Assembling the Die Cut Nautical Anchor and Stars

Both the anchor and stars were attached to the crimper layer using small pieces of mounting tape.  I think popping images up rather than attaching them flat adds lots more interest to the project.

Come and see how I made this simple and fun die cut nautical anchor and stars card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my clean and simple die cut nautical anchor and stars card.  Why don’t you come along and play in the challenge.  You can check out all the details for the challenge on the Impression Obsession blog.   You will definitely want to check out all of the masculine projects by the design team.
