a little sailboat...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a super simple little card that I made using the current layout from Freshly Made Sketches as well as the colors from ColourQ.  I recently purchased the Stampin Up! set Swirly Bird and the matching dies.  I have been wanting to make something with them and thought the FMS layout would be the perfect vehicle.  I turned the sketch upside down so that my wave wouldn't look silly up at the top of  my card.  I die cut the waves from Pool Party cardstock and then stamped all the parts of the sailboat using all the other colors.  The little rectangle panel was die cut using one of the smaller Polka Dot Rectangle dies from AJVD.  As I was layout out my design I decided to emboss the waves on to the bottom of my cardstock.  Because I don't often use my dies to emboss I frequently forget how to do it.  Thankfully I remembered correctly this time and the embossing turned out perfect!  I slid the panel in between the die cut waves and then adhered the entire piece to my card front slightly overlapping the embossed waves.  Once I had that done I realized that I should have figured out where I was going to place my sentiment before I did that, but I was able to save the day by stamping the small "hello" sentiment from a MFT set down at the bottom of the panel.  I will also add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of create a scene since I did create a little scene with my sailboat. 




Thanks for stopping by today...

This is wonderful, Rosemary! Sliding the panel into the die-cut gives it such a fun and jaunty look! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

The way you put your boat image panel in between the waves on your die is genius Rosi. Love it.
