You Are My Anchor—MFT June Creative Construction with Blueprints: Make It Masculine


Hi everyone, it’s time for a the June MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge! This month we’re challenged to “Make it Masculine” and I thought using the recently released You Float My Boat stamp set and You Float My Boat Die-namics along with Blueprints 28 Die-namics to create a slider card would be perfect for this.


I used Sweet Tooth card stock for the card base and the slider mechanism, and on which to stamp the boat with Kraft dye ink, Cornflower dye ink, and Red Hot dye ink. I cut Kraft card stock with Blueprints 22 Die-namics for the tab and stamped it with Interactive Labels, punched a hole, and threaded some heavy cotton yarn through it.


My card front was cut from Blue Breeze card stock then I masked off the border area all around with Post-It Tape and stamped with Whimsical Waves Background and Versamark then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped before I added the slider element, then the boat was popped up on foam when it was all assembled. I added the anchor, cut with You Float My Boat Die-namics from Brushed Silver card stock to finish off.

And that’s it for today!Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
