Step by Step
Trim blue Capsule Collection cardstock slightly smaller than a square card, and add a faux stitched border with a white gel pen.
Die cut the scalloped wave from the two different check patterns from the Happy Days paper pack. Trim to size and sand the edges. Die cut the anchor and thread twine through. Wrap twice around the front wave and secure on the reverse. Adhere the layers at the bottom of the card using 3D foam pads between the layers to add depth.
Die cut the boat shape from brown cardstock – with such an intricate die it can be useful to use a magnetic shim or to rotate the die 90degrees before passing through the machine a second time.
Die cut the small sail shape 5 times from red cardstock and the large sail once. Die-cut the pointy sail from red cardstock. Cut one from the front of the card and one from the reverse to give you two sails facing either direction, but each with the textured surface of the card to the front.
Die cut the boat shape again and snip away just the small flags. Adhere all these parts to the brown boat shape.
Add highlight detail to the sails with a white gel pen.
Die-cut the ‘Ahoy There’ message from white cardstock. Trim carefully into two words and adhere to the left of the card as shown.
