Nautical Masculine Card with FREE PRINTABLES27th May 2019
We’re so excited about Simply Cards & Papercraft 192. It’s a jam-packed issue with incredible inspiration from the design team. The issue comes with a versatile 9-piece Nautical Scenes die set. We were inspired to create a masculine card with a weathered and distressed look. We added lots of texture and it was really easy to achieve this effect.
We used some of the paper downloads to create our background and toppers for our card. You can download those 16 free designs here. There’s so much that you can do with printables! Don’t forget that you can print them on more than just white card stock or copy paper. You can try printing them on Kraft coloured card stock, printable vellum, or even printable acetate!
One thing that we love to do to achieve a weathered seaside effect is distressing our paper. You can use a sanding block to sand off the top layer of your printables to give them an aged look. You can also try using colour-core card stock to get this look. Don’t have a sand block? Try a piece of sandpaper or an emory board or nail file. You can also sand the edges of your card stock too!
This Nautical Scenes die set is so versatile and you’re going to fall in love with all the inspiration in the magazine. Pick up your copy at a grocery store or newsstand near you , or you can order it online!
