MC 94...

I am in the middle of creating a couple of cards for my cousin, but as usual got a bit side tracked.  Sometimes it is good to be do this, or so I tell myself, as it refreshes your mind.

I went in search of a challenge & thought I would have a go at the one over at A La Carte Monkey, one which I've never done before.  Anyhow, this week it is all about Birthdays.  We can never have enough Birthday Cards in our stash!

Measurements -
Base Card - Whisper White - 11 3/4" x 4 1/4" or 30cm x 10.5cn - Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 - Night of Navy - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - DSP - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 - Night of Navy - 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" or 11.5cm x 9cm
Layer 4 - Whisper White - 4 3/8" x 3 3/8" or 11cm x 8.5cm

Envelope & Inside...
Using Staz-On Ink, I stamped my image 3 times onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I wanted to fill the white space while at the same time, keep the white space, if that makes any sense.

Grabbing my Blender Pen & SU! Marker - Poppy Parade, I coloured parts of the sails, along with a small part of the boat.  I drew a couple of birds with my Stampin' Write Journaler.

I adhered this piece to the smaller piece of Night of Navy, then to the DSP & finally to the larger piece of Night of Navy with Snail Adhesive.  I adhered a piece of Ribbon down the Left Hand Side of the card, tied a knot & adhered the whole lot to the Base Card, again with Snail Adhesive.

My greeting was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White using the Night of Navy SU! Marker and cut into the shape of a flag.  I threaded a piece of Linen Thread through a button prior to adhering to the banner & finally to the card.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Seaworthy, Under the Big Top
Ink - Staz-On
Cardstock - Whisper White, Night of Navy
DSP - Poppy Parade
Ribbon - 1/4" Grosgrain - Night of Navy, Linen Thread
