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,

SAILING HOME LIGHTHOUSE!

A very quick card for you today using the Sailing Home Bundle. 

For this card I had some “bits” left on my table from creating lots of cards with the suite.  So we don’t want them to go to waste right?

The Night of Navy card mat was embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder.  I was going to use that on another card and didn’t end up using it so it worked for here.  I had the strip of paper from the Come Sail Away paper pack leftover and even the diecut ship wheel.  So a little stamping and sticking together and the card was done.

But wait, what about that cute little stitched sentiment diecut.  I think I sold a few sets this weekend just with this little banner alone.  Don’t we just love the stitched dies?? 🙂
