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,
