Come Sail Away Notecard

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop full of ideas and inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up! business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or you may have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

Here is the project that I have made for our hop today…

Let’s make it…

I decided to use up one of my remaining Stampin’ Up! Thin Notecards but a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock would do the job just the same! The dimensions are 12.7 x 11.4cm, scored at 6.3cm on the long edge.

The main card front is created from a sheet of the Come Sail Away DSP which I trimmed to 5 x 9cm and used the 0.5″ Circle punch to make notches in each end. These notches help to hold in place a length of Night of Navy / Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine. The card front was then adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the anchor image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating die. A small length of the Baker’s Twine was also tied through the hole in the anchor. This was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock and cut out with the label die from the Stampin’ Up! Smooth Sailing dies. One of the Sail Away Trinkets was adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using a Mini Glue Dot and the whole thing adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To create the envelope I used the Thin Notecard Envelope as a template and increased the dimensions slightly to account for the Dimensionals used on the card.

I stamped the compass image in Night of Navy ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock and cut out using the 1.5″ Circle punch. This was adhered to the envelope using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and embellished using one of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots. I also adhered the rope die cut to the left hand side of the envelope.

The sentiment (from Power of Hope) is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the banner die. I tied a length of the Baker’s Twine through another one of the Trinkets and adhered it to the back of the sentiment piece using a Mini Glue Dot. The whole thing was then adhered to the envelope using a double height of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next… send it!

I think this would make a great card for someone who is embarking on a new challenge or journey. It wishes them luck whilst encouraging them to follow their dreams.
