Make It Monday: Sailing Home

One of the challenges I face is doing simple cards. I love die-cutting and layers. However, there is beauty in a simple card, so I made this week’s card using some of the new annual catalog products from the Come Sail Away suite (coming June 4th).

I started by stamping the larger boat and birds from the Sailing Home stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink (new 2019-2021 In Color) on a thick Whisper White card base.

Next, I stamped one of the sentiments on a Crumb Cake banner strip in Pretty Peacock ink. 
To create the side panel, I randomly stamped the compass on a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock then added a strip of Silver foil paper as a coordinating accent to the ship’s wheel embellishment.
To finish this card, I carried the compass image inside.

  1. Fold a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock in half to create card base.
  2. Stamp larger boat and birds from Sailing Home stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink in lower right corner of card front.
  3. Stamp sentiment from Sailing Home stamp set on a 1-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. Snip right end to form a banner. Adhere toward top of card front.
  4. Randomly stamp compass on a 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock in Pretty Peacock ink. 
  5. Adhere a 1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Silver Foil paper behind Pretty Peacock strip, leaving a small amount showing along right edge. 
  6. Wrap Linen Thread 3 times around Pretty Peacock strip, tying off in middle.
  7. Adhere ship’s wheel in middle with Glue Dots. 
  8. Tie knot several times with a piece of Linen Thread and adhere to middle of ship’s wheel with Glue Dot.

  10. Stamp the compass inside card in Pretty Peacock ink on lower right corner to finish card.
