A Nautical Themed Card

Hi everyone! This is Deepti Stephens and I hope you are all doing well.. :) Today my card features the new Pearl Metallic Cardstock, Nautical Themed Wooden Embellishments and Double sided tape! You can do so much with the double sided tape but I went and experimented with the 'heat embossing'. Let's have a look!

I took Pearl Metallic Cardstock which comes in assorted colors and in A4 size. I cut it into half and made a A2 top folding card. These papers are really gorgeous and elegant so I do not want to waste any single piece of it.. ;) Next I took another piece, a small panel of Neenah Solar White Cardstock, I wanted to do 'heat embossing' at the bottom portion of the card!

So instead of using the Versamark Ink I used Double Sided Tape. I guess double sided tape + heat embossing = a BIG failure. I used Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.You can see all the messy and wrinkled embossing, I was quite disappointed, I'm not going to try this technique again with the double sided tape!

Once the embossing part was done I flicked some Mermaid Lagoon Distress Stain Spray on to the cardstock and I let it dry for some time. While it was drying, I stamped Enjoy the Journey Sentiment from Teresa Collins. 

You can see the distressed embossed sentiment, that is because I didn't stamp well. But that's ok, I think it's quite fine! ;) 

I assembled everything together! Look at that tiny cute little boat, LOVE it!! You can find the Nautical Wooden Buttons here.. ;)

And that's it.. I have a video too for you, you can watch it here or go to You Tube, click HD and enjoy!

And also I have a free sketch for you! You can download it if you are interested!

I hope you enjoyed watching the video and I hope you liked  my card too. If you have any questions please leave a comment below! 

Thank you so much for stopping by. Take care and I'll see you next time! 


  1. Lovely nautical card Deepti! Those nautical buttons are really cute!

  2. Wow..Awesome card ...Everything on it suits perfect to the theme !

  3. Surprising you didnt get good results with the double sided tape and heat embossing Deepti ...maybe the tape had wrinkles while you had adhered it. I got beautiful results and it was again duplicated by Indira Tanwar on her blog .you can see my card here : Easy Heat Embossing tutorial
