I created this card for a friend to give to his wife for Mother's Day. She loves brown pelicans and likes to photograph them. The only image that came to mind was Magnolia's Pelican from their Bon Voyage Collection. He also wanted it to not be too girly and have a nautical theme. I started with MoJo Monday #291 sketch and cut Fishtail Flags with designer papers from Fancy Pants Down by the Shore. I love love LOVE this paper!! The card base is Kraft cardstock and layered with Vintage Cream. I embossed another layer of Kraft cardstock with an Ossie Dots embossing folder. I machine stitched all of the layers. Then using MFT Circle Stax die-manics I created a "porthole" and added matte finished silver brads for the rivets. A layer of pop dots was added between the outer and inner circles for depth and dimension. I added Red Poppy Saddle stitched ribbon from PTI and tied a bow using my Bow Easy. The pelican was fussy cut and also popped up with foam tape and placed atop a wooden post.
