Anchored Card with Matching Card Box Envelope

Good morning all!  Kay here with my project using the fabulous 'Anchored' collection by Authentique along with Top Dog Die products.

I decided to do a masculine themed type of card & added just a touch of softness by incorporating a bit of doily designs into the mix.
This card comes along with a matching card box envelope.  My cards tend to have a lot of dimension--so regular envelopes hardly ever work for me.  So I find myself lately making a matching card box envelope for any cards that I create.  This card box envelope measures 6" x 6 " inches and is 1" inch deep.  It houses my card perfectly!
On the cover I've used two Top Dog Dies.  Both doilies seen peeking around the layers of my card are from the 'Cherish Doilies & Tags' die set by Top Dog.  I really enjoyed the intricate details of this die.

That really cute little bottle is also by Top Dog Die--it's from their 'Bottles #1' set.
To keep with the masculine theme I used a burlap type of flower from my stash and added a couple of Petaloo flowers in red & blue around it in order to create my cluster. 
This little guy is a stamp.  I stamped the image onto a piece of acrylic.  I didn't want to cover any part of the boat design that I decided to use on the cover of my card--so going with a transparent image seemed like the way to go.  All I did was add a bit of Star Dust Stickles to my little pirate in order to dress him up a bit more.

The base of my card is also a Top Dog Die.  This circular die is designed to be used for mini albums--but I found that it also works great for making cards.  I just folded a piece of card stock in half & ran it along with the die through my Big Shot making sure that I left just about a 1/4" of an inch at the top uncut--this created the base of my card.  
Here's my card all ready to be given to someone that 'rocks my boat' as the sentiment on the cover implies!  :-)

Hope you all enjoyed this dimensional card!  Enjoy the rest of the week...

  3. Love the way the pirate bleeds over into other parts of the card instead of being centered on one piece. Really adds interest. The layering is great.
