Nautical ManyLayers TY Card

Created this Thank You card with a Nautical theme. The card has many layers, detail & texture.

Used Tim Holtz paper distresser & TH Distress Ink on Cape Cod cardstock that has sea plantlife design on it.

Used a new embossing folder, Anchors, I bought at Hobby Lobby last week. Had bought at JoAnns some time ago & first time using the Darice core'dinations cardstock that has a white core. When the Darice core'dinations cardstock is embossed & sanded the white core shows thru nicely. Trimmed a piece of the embossing for a layer on the card.

Used more of the Shimmer Sheetz paper to die cut the Fish & SeaHorse.

Stamped Hero Arts 'thank you.' Cut out the sentiment with a Simon Says Stamp die. Used Anchors washi tape to hold the sentiment tag in place.

Added the scrap rope which complements the Nautical theme & adds texture.
