Sail Away Birthday Card

Nautical Theme Masculine Wreath

Another wreath card using Gina K’s wreath builder template. This one is for a masculine birthday card and with a nautical theme. I really had no plan when I started this card. I just started and kept adding as the “nautical wreath” took shape. What fun to just experiment!

Stamps to create this card: Lighthouse Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Sail Boats Multi-Step Clear Stamps, and Ocean Water Multi-Step Clear Stamps (net) from Kitchen Sink Stamps.


Stamping order to create this card using a wreath builder template. Card stock size is 5″ x 5″.

  1. Lighthouses.
  2. Sentiment and sentiment drop shadow.
  3. Anchor and ship’s wheel.
  4. Seagulls.
  5. Fishnet.
