Sailing Home with Fab Friday 169

Sailing Home

Each product in the Sailing Home suite works together to create stunning nautical cards for unisex cards.  I used just a few pieces of the dies, two pieces of DSP, the Crumb Cake and Night of Navy baker’s twine, Night of Navy and Crumb Cake cardstock, some ink, and a Sailing Home trinket for the FabFri169 challenge.  This clean and simple card came together very quickly, and would be easily replicated for mass production.  

Here’s the challenge banner from Fab Friday:

This simple sketch lends itself to a multitude of interpretations.  Here’s the card I created:


A Simple Process

Night of Navy cardstock provides the base, with the first pattern of DSP for the background.  I used the Layering Circle die set to crop the compass from another piece of DSP.  I especially like the size of the DSP compasses, which really worked for this sketch challenge.

Crumb Cake cardstock provided the base of the lighthouse.  I stamped it with Night of Navy ink and cropped using the lighthouse die.  I also used Night of Navy ink for the sentiment.  This sentiment fits perfectly in the banner from Smooth Sailing dies.   In order to add some depth to the sentiment banner, I outlined it using an Early Espressso marker.  I still thought the sentiment needed additional dimension to stand out, so I used a Crumb Cake marker to color in the stitches in the ditch.

After adhering the DSP compass where I wanted it, I wrapped the baker’s twine around the base of the card three times and tied it in a square knot.  Then I pulled a small length of the nylon thread which allowed me to attach the trinket to the square knot in the baker’s twine.  The lighthouse and sentiment are popped up on dimensionals, as is the base to accomodate the baker’s twine.  

Once again, I finished by decorating the envelope by stamping a lighthouse on the front left, and added more of the compass DSP on the flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

Have a Peachy day!
