Smooth Sailing

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great weekend. :) I finally got my computer back (my computer was down for six days). Yeah!

I wanted to share a card that was on the Neat & Tangled blog earlier this week:

  Smooth Sailing

Pardon the greenish photo--like I said, I was without my regular computer and editing software. 

I die-cut a hole in a Webster's Pages Ocean Melody journaling card--isn't it pretty? Then, I stamped and paper pieced the boat from the Neat & Tangled Sailmates set. Love those polka dots!

I was going to hide the bottom of the boat under the banner, but when I was playing around with the Clouds set, I realized the woodgrain looked a little like ocean swells. I have no idea why I stamped the ocean in yellow--ha ha. Creative license I suppose. ;)

Smooth Sailing


I added Crystal Clear and Pumpkin Satin sequins at the top and stitched through them. I added a Twine + Ink puffy star....love those little puffy stickers.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

  12. So if I was ever forced into sailing again ;) I think red polka-dot sails would be mandatory. What a perfectly sweet card -- I love it!
