Come Sail Away!

September and October are busy birthday month in my family.  My husband's birthday was this past Friday so I can now share the card I made for him.  You may know that we have a sailboat and we love spending time sailing around the Gulf Islands near our home on Vancouver Island. Another interesting fact about my husband is that each year I give him a fancy fold card and each year he expects something different!  I think I've created a monster!

I have seen these fancy fold cards on Pinterest so I decided I have to make one of my one.  Check it out.

    Still Scenes

    Today I'm sharing a card I made using the Still Scenes Bundle.  Instead of a shaker card that I first made, I decided to keep it simple and make a card without the dome.


    A little bit of stamping, a little bit of Snowfall Puff Paint makes for a pretty card!

    Instructions


    1. Cut Shaded Spruce cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
    2. Cut Smoky Slate cardstock 5 1/4" x 4" and adhere to card base using Snail
    3. Cut Whisper White cardstock 5" x 3 3/4".
    4. Stamp globe in Tuxedo Black Memento ink about 1/2" from top of cardstock
    5. Stamp ornate bottom in Smoky Slate ink
    6. Cut out trees from Shaded Spruce cardstock using tree die and die cutting machine
    7. Shake Snowfall Accent Puff Paint and add around trees and on bottom.  Heat with Heat Tool until paint puffs up.
    8. Adhere to Whisper White cardstock in globe using Dimensionals.
    9. Adhere to card base.
    10. Cut Whisper White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4".
    11. Stamp sentiment in Smoky Slate ink
