Some retiring

May 26, 2020

……some not.  Today’s card again features Designer Series Paper, this time the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  I cut the paper into card front sized pieces and attached them to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I cut a large circle from Whisper White card using the Layering Circles Dies.  I stamped the circle using the background stamp from the Love What You Do stamp set using Balmy Blue ink which I stamped onto scrap paper first.  I didn’t mind how uneven it stamped because I wanted it to have a “watercolour” look.  I attached the stamped circle to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the large boat image from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Light Real Red, Light Smoky Slate and Light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the image using the co-ordinating Come Sail Away Die and attached the boat to the stamped Whisper White circle. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the banner die from the Come Sail Away Dies.  The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a strip of the same Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the small boat image above the Designer Series Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using the same blends as for the boat on the front of the card.

Such a simple card, but I think it is a great guy card.

Bye for now,

Kris
