This is another card I made during that sunny 70 degree say we had a couple of weeks ago. It motivated me to make some summery cards. Of course, it has gotten cold again and they are even talking possible snow but at least the snow does not last very long in Nashville.
I am, once again, using that gorgeous paper in the Sale-a-bration Catalog called Dandy Designs. This pack of Designer Series Paper has 48 sheets for gorgeous double-sided paper. You can get it free with a $100 order. It is so worth it! I cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece and adhered it to a Basic White card base.
Next, I cut out the frame using two of the Stitched Rectangle dies. To make it easier, I cut out the larger one first. Then, I taped a smaller die to the larger die cut to keep it in place and cut out the center. You can use Washi Tape or medical tape for this. Sometimes Washi Tape can be a little to strong but you can stick it on your pants or sleeves a couple of times to redue the tackiness.
I took a 3″ x 4.25″ piece of Basic White card stock and added color to it using Blending Brushes and Balmy Blue, Tahitian Tide and Pacific Point ink for the background. I first stamped the birds from the stamp set called Let’s Set Sail in Whisper White ink but they did not show up very well so I added some more using Starry Sky ink. I am just saying the white birds are in the distance behind some clouds. I adhered this piece to the back of the frame I made earlier.
After this, I stamped the sails in Starry Sky ink and the sailboat in Crumb Cake and punched them using using the coordinating Sailboat Builder Punch. If you purchase the stamp set and the punch in a bundle you can save 10%. I stamped the shadow of the sailboat using Whisper White ink and the sentiment from Heron Habitat in Starry Sky ink.
