Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away to a New Adventure

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I got all my baking done and now I just have to make up all the platters that I give out.  I like to make up all the platters at once so that I’m not pulling containers in and out since there are so many.  The final count was 25 different kinds and 1820 cookies not including the bar cookies.  I have to admit, by Saturday night I was wiped.

For today’s card, my husband asked me to make a card for a co-worker of his that is leaving for a new job.  I decided to bring out some DSP from the Annual Catalog and came up with a really quick card that he loved.  I even let him help design the card, just a little though.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine around the matted DSP twice and tie a square knot.

I cut the sentiment out of a scrap piece of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Sweet Silhouette Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered another panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
