This is my last post for my Red, White and Blue week! The Fourth of July is over but the the memories remain….A Movie Date with my husband, London Broil on the grill, watching the Boston Pops and the beauty of fireworks bursting in the air choreographed to Patriotic Music from New York City.
Speaking of memories, you might remember I did a Red, White and Blue card for Memorial Day, you can see that here when I made a Patriotic Thank You card. Today’s card is very similar…in fact just about the same design, but with a few slight differences.
In keeping with the Red, White and Blue them of the week, this card features three Ships’s Wheels that are cut from the SMOOTH SAILING DIES. The red and blue ship’s wheels are cut from Real Red and Night of Navy Cardstock. If you look closely, you’ll see that the middle White Ship’s Wheel is very glittery. This wheel is cut from White Glimmer Paper. It’s like Glitter Paper, but 1,000 times better as the Glimmer stays on the paper. It doesn’t come off on your hands,….or your trimmer when cutting. In other words, it’s the perfect paper to add a little shine to any card and it doesn’t make a glittery mess!
The bird “paper” on the top of the card is actually a piece of Whisper White Cardstock that was randomly stamped in Night of Navy ink using the bird image from the SAILING HOME STAMP SET. See the birds between the sailboat and the anchor below? And did you see the red rope die cut in the picture above? It’s snuggled right inbetween the “bird paper” and the Navy and White Striped paper from the COME SAIL AWAY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER. The SMOOTH SAILING DIES include several images that are not stamps like the long rope (along the side), the rope knot and the seaweed. So it’s like getting an extra bonus or items to add to your cards. And if you order the SAILING HOME BUNDLE (the stamp set and the coordinating dies, you SAVE 10%!!)
If you’d like to make this card, this is what you’ll need:
- Sailing Home Stamp Set
- Smooth Sailing Dies
- Ink: Real Red and Night of Navy
- SNAIL adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals (ships wheels & banner)
