Sailing Away….

With the rainy weather we are having in South East Queensland & the Sunshine Coast, this card is very appropriate, as we will all soon need the boats out to get around.  I love it as it keeps the humidity down!


?Our class today at Crafty Creations was to create a male card.  These cards can sometimes prove the most difficult to make, but this one come together quiet easy.  In fact, I was really surprised at how it all came together.  I love the final result!

Measurements –
Base Card – Night of Navy – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Riding Hood Red – 3″ x 4″ or 7.5cm x 10cm
Layer 3 – DSP – 2 7/8″ x 4″ or 7cm x 10cm
Layer 4 – Riding Hood Red – 3 5/8″ x 3 1/8″ or 9cm x 8cm??

Layer 5 – Whisper White – 3 1/2″ x 3″ or 8.5cm x 7.5cm

I wanted the card to be Navy & White mostly, with just a touch of Red showing.

I adhered the DSP to the piece of Riding Hood Red leaving just a small amount of the red showing at the top.  This was then adhered to the piece of Whisper White prior to adhering to the Base Card – Night of Navy using Snail Adhesive.


?I stamped the image onto Whisper White using Staz-On, allowed to dry & using my Blender Pen & SU Marker – Riding Hood Red, I coloured a little of the sails.  This piece was then adhered to Riding Hood Red using Snail Adhesive, before adhering to the Base Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped my sentiment onto Whisper White using Night of Navy Ink, punched with the small Oval Punch, adhered to a punched piece of Riding Hood Red which had been punched with the Large Oval Punch & then adhered to the bottom of the card with Snail Adhesive.

I love the whole look of this card!
