Sail Away with Me!

Hello! It is Gloria Stengel with you again today! This is my last July guest post here at The Rubber Cafe.  I am once again working with the July Creative Cafe Kit,  A Whole Water Fun. This time I have used the add-on stamp set, Sail Away With Me.

I really love nautical-themed stamps and papers. I am not sure I don't like being ON the water! I have horrid seasickness! But, I do love LOOKING at boats, lighthouses, and water! 

I made this card, which is suitable for a wedding anniversary or other "love themed" occasion!

I started out by creating a card from the Bazzill Basics Garnet cardstock from the July Creative Cafe Kit. The card is a standard, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card, with a top fold. 

I trimmed the fish scale paper from the 6x6 pad in the kit, to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches.

I trimmed the sail boat paper to 4 1/8 x 4 1/2 inches. I traced the wave shape on the bottom of the paper and trimmed it out with scissors. Then I glued the sail boat paper to the top of the fish scale paper.

To make the washi tape (from the kit) a bit less "see through" I attached it to the off white ribbon from the kit. I then wrapped the washi ribbon around the printed paper, just above the wave shape.

I attached the printed paper to the card front. Next, I stamped the anchor from the  Sail Away With Me stamp set onto white cardstock and colored it with alcohol markers. I trimmed it out with a circle die template and then matted the circle with an inverted scallop circle die cut shape, cut from the garnet cardstock. I attached the image to the card with foam tape, lining it up with the "fat part" of the wave shape.

I stamped a sentiment from the  Sail Away With Me stamp set onto white cardstock, and trimmed it out with a banner die template. I attached the banner to the bottom of the card.

I then punched a tiny heart from the garnet cardstock. I also put the washi tape over the garnet cardstock and punched a second heart. I attached both hearts to the banner with foam tape.

I lined the inside of the card with white cardstock, ready for a message or a sentiment.

Thanks for joining me today!
