Sailing Home with Ribbon Thanks

Sailing Home with Ribbon Thanks

The Sailing Home Stamp Set lends itself to a great variety of card options.  Here’s one with a few layers and a simple “Thanks” greeting.  You can see another “Sailing Home” card here and a “Anchor” card here!  Thanks to Design With Jo for sharing her card in landscape orientation.

 

 

Here are the products used – click on the picture to purchase yours:

Now I’ll tell you how I put it together:

Cut Seaside Spray Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.

Cut Crumb Cake Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the card base.

Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5″ x 3-3/4″.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the Crumb Cake layer.

Cut Seaside Spray Cardstock at 4-1/4″ x 3-1/4”
Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 4″ x 3″.  Use Seaside Spray Classic Ink to stamp the lighthouse from the Sailing Home Stamp Set on this layer. Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the Seaside Spray Cardstock layer.

Use Mini Glue Dots to attach a length of ribbon to the back of this layer. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the completed layer to the prepared card base.

Cut a piece of coordinating In Color DSP at 4″ x 1/2″. Use Snail Adhesive to attach near the bottom of the card.

Use Seaside Spray Classic Ink to stamp the greeting from the Sailing Home Stamp Set on Whisper White Cardstock. Use the coordinating die with the Big Shot to cut it out. Cut another “ribbon shape” from Seaside Spray Cardstock. Use Liquid Glue to attach the Seaside layer behind the Whisper White greeting. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the completed greeting layer over the DSP.

If you’re like me, you have a number of youngsters in your life that love dinosaurs and love getting birthday cards!!  The Dino Days stamp set and matching dies are perfect for making greeting cards that these little people will want to keep forever!  Thanks to fellow demonstrator, Lillian Kemp, for sharing her design!

These are the products used for the “Pink” card:

Now let’s see how it’s made:

Cut Melon Mambo Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. Use Big Shot and Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder to add a design to the front of the card base.

Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 2-1/2″ x 4″. Use Lovely Lipstick Classic Ink to stamp the greeting from the Dino Days Stamp Set. Make sure the greeting will be visible through the DSP frame.

Cut Dinoroar DSP 4″ x 12″ – you can cut 4 frames from this with the selected dies. Use the Big Shot and the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the frame. For this card I used the 4th largest die and the 7th largest die to create the frame.

Arrange the dies, with the cutting side up, on the clear plate on the magnetic plate. Lay the DSP, right side down, over the dies.

 

 

 

 

 

Hold in place with a small piece of washi tape.

Use Liquid Multipurpose Glue to attach a piece of Window Sheet to the back of the DSP.   Attach strips of Foam Adhesive Strips along all 4 edges of the Window Sheet.

Use the Embossing Buddy around the inside of the Foam Adhesive Strips so that the embellishments won’t stick to them.

Place the sequins inside the frame. Remove the covering from the Foam Adhesive Strips and attach the stamped Whisper White Cardstock over to hold the sequins inside.

Use Liquid Multipurpose Glue to attach the completed shaker frame to the front of the card base.
