Hello! With all things nautical on trend at the moment, I thought I'd share a card I made back when I was on the Dirty Dozen design team at Splitcoaststampers in 2011.
Our theme that month was Oh, So Shapely and the challenge was to use dies or punches.
At the time I had fewer dies and absolutely nothing nautical but I found a colouring book image of a sailboat on-line and printed it onto dp and card stock on the back side.
I then cut out the shapes and pieced together this little boat.
If you're stuck for a certain shaped die-cut, it's a quick and not too difficult alternative!
The waves were made with My Favorite Things Die-namics and I used a Papertrey Ink Cloud die for the clouds. I used the spotlighting technique for part of the waves and sentiment (which was computer generated). All circles were cut using Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles Large and Small.
It was all pieced together with scraps from my dp stash so it's impossible to list them all here.
Just thought I'd share something with a fun summer theme today as we're having a very unusual spell of sunny weather here in Northern Ireland. It seems too good to be true to be having a "proper" summer!
Thanks for stopping by today!
