SU Sailing Home Card

Hello and welcome to part 5 of my Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Suite Showcase. This week I want to share with you a card I created for the Global Design Project Challenge #233. This is a colour challenge using the combination Pool Party, So Saffron and Petal Pink. If you would like to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in you can find their website here.

This might not be an obvious colour combination for the Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Suite but this week I’ve been trying to ‘think outside the box’! This is my entry…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have then cut a layer of Whisper White cardstock to 8 x 12.9cm. One of the images from the Stampin’ Up! Bokeh Dots Stamp Set has been stamped onto Whisper White cardstock in all three of the challenge colours – Pool Party, So Saffron and Petal Pink. These images were then trimmed.

I adhered the Petal Pink piece to the top of the Whisper White cardstock strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then ripped along the top edge of the Pool Party piece and adhered this such that it overlapped slightly with the Petal Pink piece. I repeated this with the So Saffron piece to create the main card front.

Images and one of the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Stamp Set were stamped in Petal Pink ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. Note: the compass is actually cut out using the 1.5″ Circle Punch.

A length of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon has been coloured using the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends and then looped through the anchor and tied in place with a length of Silver Metallic Thread.

The die-cut images are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the sentiment is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
