Today I thought a fun summery card would be fun to make. And as you can see from yesterday's card that I have not put away the "Swirly Bird" stamp set yet. If you saw my worktable you would see that I have not put a lot of stamp sets away!!! LOL I don't do it until I have no more room to work or if I have people coming over!!! I'm SO bad.
I was just thinking how fast summer seems to fly by after the 4th of July. I thought I would make some more summer colored cards. You can take a flower card and make it into any season by the colors you use. Sail boats don't usually float around my neck of the woods in the winter. So I thought I should give it another try and this is what I came up with.
I also thought it would be fun to play with that wavy die too!! I want to see what else I can do with it. I'm sure there's more to it than just waves. I have to give it more thought (while it sits on my worktable!!!) LOL
For the sun I used Crushed Curry ink and card stock.
The boat was stamped using Dapper Denim, Pool Party, and Marina Mist (stamped off once with that color only). I used Real Red for the flag. I suppose I could have stamped the flag along with the sail boat but I didn't, I did it separate and then cut it out separate.
The wavy things were cut out using the framelit and Pool Party card stock. To affix it I just put some white glue down on a piece of waxed paper and smeared it with my finger so I had a nice even layer. Then I set the wave thing on top to collect some glue. And I set it in place on the card stock. I don't have a fine tip glue pen and I think that even if I did, the glue on the waxed paper was SO much quicker and easier. It didn't make a mess. I just rolled up the piece of waxed paper and tossed it away. As simple as that!
I layered the card front on a folded half sheet of Marina Mist. The more I look at it, the more I think the Dapper Denim would have been a better choice. But it looks okay as it is.
I was going to make it a masculine birthday card but I opted for a retirement card instead. I used the words from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. Now I have one if I need one. Though that doesn't usually fly with me. I tend to make a fresh card when I need one, no matter what's in my stash! Silly, I know!!
