SAILING HOME PAPER BOATS!

Ok.  This is the last for a while.  I have hit you hard with all these nautical cards with the Come Sail Away Suite of products this past week.  I will move on after today.

For this card I wanted to use one of the prints in the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper pack.  I found it well a bit dull.  Can I say that?? I mean it was a dull colour and was like an old newsprint.  I think it was the colour of it that challenged me.  So let’s give it a try. Maybe you feel the same and don’t know what to do with it.

I cut a piece of the paper to a size just a little smaller than your card front.   Then I cut off about 5cm (2″), then flipped that paper piece over and then used the 2 different prints for the front. the join was covered with the diecut “rope”.  Adding a little pop of colour with the Night of Navy and the Real Red certainly lifts it.

The compass was stamped on white and cut out then layered on a little Red scalloped Circle from the Layering circles Dies.  The fun thing with the Smooth Sailing Dies is that there is the little “needle”.  I cut one out from Night of Navy to adhere over the compass.  It gives you a little dimension to it.  I didn’t like the boats just stuck on the front of the card.  They needed a little grounding so I cut a vellum piece from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I hope you have liked all these cards from this suite of products.  I have certainly had fun with them.  Which card has been your favourite?

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny
