Vintage Ahoy There

This is batch number two casing the Ahoy There card I made back in July and has been made using shades of brown to create a more vintage feel this time.  The brown card stock is from the Papeterie and the striped backing card is from Kanban.  Stampin' up inks and ribbon were used in their chocolate chip and crumb cake colours and once again the Grande Dots 8" x 8" Embossalicious embossing folder from Crafter's Companion was used to add texture to a backing layer.

This is a picture of the Hero Arts stamp which was used to create the backing layer for the front of the card and also to decorate the insert. 

These two cards are for two uncles who celebrate their birthday this month.  

Thanks for reading
