Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

We have a fun theme challenge today for our scheduled weekly hop – outdoors!

Stampion' Up! Let's Set Sail. hop 4/20

This is a fun fold… hmmm what do we call this? Side fold? I don’t know. but let me tell you how to make this…

The card base is cut 8 1/4 x 4 1/4 and scored on the long side at 5 1/2. I used the new Misty Moonlight for the base. It has just a hint of gray in it. And it’s perfect for a sailing card :O) I cut a panel of the Sun Prints DSP in stripe 2 1/2 x 4 (yep, it’s retiring and I’m trying to use it!). This was adhered to the left front fold. I wrapped a length of Baker’s Twine (carrying over!) from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack in Crumb Cake around it twice and tied a knot, which I adhered with a glue dot right at the knot. For the inside, I added a piece of another design but also from Sun Prints DSP, to the right inside of the card base (4 1/8 x 5 3/8). THEN… I cut Basic White card stock 7 1/4 x 3 1/2 and scored it at 3 5/8. This becomes the right-sided fold that flips over the front left panel of the card base. I stamped the two sentiments in Misty Moonlight ink (new!) from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set (retiring!) I then added this basic white folded piece to the card base, as shown.

For the front of that Basic White addition , I added another piece of the Sun Prints DSP (retiring!) to the front of that fold. It was cut 3 3/8 x 3 3/8. Now to decorate that square… Using the Stylish Shapes Dies largest circle, I die cut a piece of the Hues of Happiness DSP (yep, retiring). I stamped the bird image from Let’s Set Sail in Memento ink, then added that circle with dimensionals. Now… the sailboat :O), the boat was stamped in Misty Moonlight ink; the sails were stamped in Crushed Curry ink, then punched with the Sailboat Builder Punch. I added the boat directly to the circle, then attached the sails with mini dimensionals. And guess what, the card was done.

For the envelope… more of the Sun Prints DSP on the flap trimmed to fit and another narrow strip added to the bottom of the envelope front. This is yet another great masculine card for my stash – yay!

My demonstrator order of new products arrived from Stampin’ Up! late last night. Somehow it got ‘lost in the shuffle’ and finally arrived. I cannot WAIT TO PLAY!!! What will I play with first? Probably the daisies… I’m a daisy FAN! :O) But who knows?

Time to move on in the hop… click the ‘next’ button to visit Carol, or click on a name if you want to skip around. Enjoy!
