Smooth Sailing Card

Hello crafty friends,
Today I am sharing a fun card I created with some wonderful Dare 2 B Artzy stamps,  inks and papers. It is the perfect card for your stash.
Here's my completed card. It is an standard A2, top folding card. I made the base with some white cardstock. I cut the mat from some patterned paper from the Seas The Day collection.

The focal image of the card is the sailboat stamp image from the Anchors Away Stamp set. I used my colored pencils to color in the image after I stamped it with Totally Black ink. The waves are a stamp from the same set. I used some Midnight Blue ink to stamp them. I colored in the background and the waves with my colored pencils. I added a couple of sequins to finish off the look.

I layered my finished image onto a red cardstock mat and then layered that onto a white mat with a cross-stitched edged. I thread some ribbon through the layers of the mats for a little visual interest. I added a bow to finish it off the embellishments.

Lastly, I added my sentiment that comes from the Sail Away stamp set. I used the Totally Black ink and stamped it onto some white cardstock.


Be sure to head over and pick up your stamps, inks and papers and have some fun! Don't forget to stop back by and see what the designers are creating! Until the next time, have a wonderfully crafty day.
