Today’s tutorial project features the Waterfront stamp set (Occasions Catalog). The varied images allow your imagination to run wild with landscape options. And, it’s perfect for masculine cards.

I’ve included written instructions below for those of you using a mobile device. I also have a free PDF tutorial available for those that would like to download and save this project for a later day.
