Today’s card is for my sweetheart of a hubby, his birthday! He loves to sail our little 16′ Bullseye and therefore the Sailing Home stamp set is perfect for a card for him.

Sailing home birthday.1

I started by using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and Beauty of the Earth DSP to create a rectangle, then stamped the sailboat in Misty Moonlight ink and the birds in Smoky Slate ink. I die cut the same size panel in Basic White and adhered it to the back of the panel for strength. I then die cut with the largest of the Stitched Rectangles Dies, a Basic White panel. I stamped the anchor in Smoky Slate ink from the Sailing Home stamp set, then the two sentiments. The ‘Happiest…’ sentiment is from All squared Away stamp set and stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. The other sentiment is from Days to Remember stamp set and done in Smoky Slate ink. I added five retired 2020-2022 Enamel Dots in Misty Moonlight, then wrapped Baker’s Twine from the Essentials Pack around the Basic White panel 2 times and tied a knot. I then adhered the sailboat panel with dimensionals. This Basic White panel also got dimensionals and was added to the card base. The card base is Basic White with a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock adhered with liquid glue. This frames the white panel nicely. Card cuts are listed at the end of the post.

Sailing Home Birthday.2

The inside was kept really simple – using the largest of the Stitched Rectangles dies, cut a panel of Basic White, stamp the sentiment from All Squared Away stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink and adhere with liquid glue to a larger Misty Moonlight panel, then attach to the inside of the card – yep, with liquid glue. And the card is complete… 🙂

For the envelope, I took a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock and ran it through the new Bark 3D embossing folder and attached it to the flap. Love this new folder!!!
