Ahoy Little Sailor

 

Hi, I am back with another project I was able to get down this morning. I made this for the challenge over at the Papertrey Posse group that I am apart of. I was able to spend a part of my Saturday at the beach and was able to sit on the sand and read some and look out at the sailboats and parasailers. Please don't throw things at me.LOL I know many of you are still buried under with snow. This time I had to myself gave me the inspiration for this card. The challenge was for some kind of window card. I used Blueberry Sky CS and cut the windows using the Take Three die. I did pop it up with 3D dot strips. I first laid it on my card and traced lightly with a pencil so I would know where to stamp my image. I used Bitty Baby Blessings for the image and sentiment. I tried to make it look like the sailboat was actually sailing. I used my copics to color them in. I sewed white grosgrain ribbon and just pushed under my sewing machine foot as I sewed. I hoped it would look somewhat like waves. Somewhat of a simple card but I do like how it turned out. Since it isn't for any pacific occasion so I just might send it to one of my grandsons for no particular reason but to say hello.
Hope you have a enjoyable rest of your day!
Thanks for stopping by,
Liz

This is so creative! I can not get over how cute and clever it is. I love how the sailboat seems to sail past the three windows. The ribbon trim is so beautifully done too. Really great card. I love it.

This is so cute and unique! I really love the ribbon treatment on it! I have that take 3 die and have never used it but this card makes me want to dig it out and make something :)
