Sailing Home, Itty Bitty Greeting, Masculine Birthday Card, 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog

The "Sailing Home" set was a must have for me.  It was the first sailing set I have purchased. I've seen other ones but this one caught my eye. Perhaps is it came with matching dies.  NO fussy cutting.  The "Sailing Away" set was fun but I never purchased it.  The sail boat in the old set was a lot larger than the one in this set.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Daffodil Delight.  Punch out a 1-3/8" circle for the sun before taping the card stock on the card base. I like to try to punch around the area that the circle is going to be set.  I get close but not spot on and it really doesn't matter, it won't show.

Next I took a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White and I textured it using the new "High Seas" 3D embossing folder.  Then I taped the piece on top of the Daffodil Delight.

I cut a 1-1/2" x 3-7/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Neutrals 6" x 6" paper stacks.  There's some fun designs in there and you get a lot of pieces for your money! I have yet to use up a pack of these papers.  I taped the DSP to the bottom of the Whisper White piece.

I stamped the sail boat on a piece of Whisper White and then die cut it.  I colored it in using Blends Pens.  I colored the boat with Light Night of Navy and the end of the boat with Dark Night of Navy.  I colored the left sides of the sails using light Balmy Blue.  I colored the mast and the cabin of the boat with light Crumb Cake.  And I added a little Balmy Blue light and dark to the water.  

I die cut the ships wheel using a piece of scrap Crumb Cake card stock. 

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Greeting" set.  I stamped them using Night of Navy ink on Whisper White card stock.  I die cut them with the fun stitched ribbon die that is in the "Smooth Sailing" matching dies.  

I glued the sun in place. I thought that snail tape wasn't strong enough to hold it due to the texture of the embossed piece.  I would think that Tear & Tape should hold it.  

I set the sail boat in place using Dimensionals.  

I cut four little pieces of Dimensionals and set them on the thick round part of the ships wheel die.  I set that in place on the left of the card.  I added a gold pearl to the center of the wheel.

I also set the words in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  I'm thinking I should have stamped the birds in the upper right area but I had already textured the piece.  Maybe if I ever make this card again I will add the birds.

This was a fun and easy card to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
