Sailing Away...


Here's a little card about Sailing.. I cut a ship using the Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge (pirate boy accessory) and added just a few embellishments. I cut the ship first in brown and then white and paper pieced the sails. I added an extra layer of white to the middle sail to make it look a little extra billowy. I also added a few pieces of twine by piercing the card and threading the twine through, like big stitches. The sky background is from the DCWV Playtime stack and to finish, I inked some paper with different shades of blue. I cut the paper into strips using scalloped edge scissors backwards instead of the usual direction to make waves instead of scallops. Some creative layering of these elements turned out to make a fun ocean. I think that this would make a fun card for a parent to send home to a child. :) I haven't yet decided on a sentiment! Or maybe, I will leave it just like this.

Great effect of the boat being between the waves! I think I'd be tempted to leave it sentiment free too. It could be for just about any occasion.
