Smooth Sailing Card

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas. Sorry I haven’t been around but had to change my medication so haven’t been on top of things and of course the festive season is still chaotic even though my children are mostly grown-up now. I did go and see my granddaughter in her first school show though, which was lovely 🙂

Today I have a birthday card for you using my favourite set from the annual catalogue.

Base Card – Whisper White 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
Layer 1 – Balmy Blue Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
Oval – Whisper White 4 1/2″ x 3″
Strip of DSP 3 7/8″ x 1″
Scraps of Whisper White Cardstock for boats
Whisper White Envelope

Now we can assemble our card.

Glue the Embossed layer to the front of your card.

Add the oval.

Near the bottom of your card, glue on the strip of DSP and add the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add a sail away trinket.
