Hey everyone! Happy Monday! I hope your start to the week is going well. I don’t know about you, but it’s hot here, so summer is upon us! And to get you started let’s look at the Sailing Home Bundle today. This is a card I created last week and never had a chance to share with you until now. Here are the measurements for the card:
- Card base in Night of Navy cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Sahara Sand cardstock cut at 2″ x 5 1/4″ and 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ for the inside
Since I don’t have the DSP yet, I chose to create a piece of my own using the Stamparatus. It works like magic when lining up images. I placed my piece of Sahara Sand down with a magnet and started at the top and stamped the rope image in Sahara Sand ink. Then I moved the plate down two hinge spaces and stamped again, then once more. I cleaned my stamp, measured again for the second row and repeated the steps. I love how it turned out! Then I wrapped a piece of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine around and tied it in a knot up at the top. I thought it needed a little something, so I stamped the anchor image in Basic Gray (stamping off first) and then cut it out with the coordinating die. I took another piece of the twine and separated the colors and used the strands of Night of Navy to tie the anchor to the twine I wrapped at the top. Then I glued it all down. Next I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut it out with the label die. I really like the shape of this one. I cut out the ship’s wheel in Sahara Sand and added it to the back of the label with a couple of Mini Glue Dots. I ran a few strips of adhesive on the back of the label and added some more of the Baker’s Twine. Next I added some dimensionals and added it to the card front.
Since I’m not sure who is going to get this card yet, I just stamped the anchor in Basic Gray again, stamping off like the other one and glued the layer to the inside.
I think you’re going to like these new style dies as much as I do. Whenever you have anything intricate like stitching or small cut areas, the cardstock just falls right out! I love it! Have you got this set on your wish list yet? I think this is definitely one that needs to be added to the list! And if you’re list is as big as mine, now is the perfect time to get the Starter Kit!
