Sailing Away....

With the rainy weather we are having in South East Queensland & the Sunshine Coast, this card is very appropriate, as we will all soon need the boats out to get around.  I love it as it keeps the humidity down!

Our class today at Crafty Creations was to create a male card.  These cards can sometimes prove the most difficult to make, but this one come together quiet easy.  In fact, I was really surprised at how it all came together.  I love the final result!

Measurements -
Base Card - Night of Navy - 8 1/4" x 5 7/8" or 21cm x 15cm - Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 - Whisper White - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Riding Hood Red - 3" x 4" or 7.5cm x 10cm
Layer 3 - DSP - 2 7/8" x 4" or 7cm x 10cm
Layer 4 - Riding Hood Red - 3 5/8" x 3 1/8" or 9cm x 8cm
Layer 5 - Whisper White - 3 1/2" x 3" or 8.5cm x 7.5cm

I wanted the card to be Navy & White mostly, with just a touch of Red showing.

I adhered the DSP to the piece of Riding Hood Red leaving just a small amount of the red showing at the top.  This was then adhered to the piece of Whisper White prior to adhering to the Base Card - Night of Navy using Snail Adhesive.

I stamped the image onto Whisper White using Staz-On, allowed to dry & using my Blender Pen & SU Marker - Riding Hood Red, I coloured a little of the sails.  This piece was then adhered to Riding Hood Red using Snail Adhesive, before adhering to the Base Card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped my sentiment onto Whisper White using Night of Navy Ink, punched with the small Oval Punch, adhered to a punched piece of Riding Hood Red which had been punched with the Large Oval Punch & then adhered to the bottom of the card with Snail Adhesive.

I love the whole look of this card!

What a great card. The colours really make you feel like your having a day out on the water. Not likely with the weather we are having, you must be wishful thinking. Love it.
