Sailing in the Blue

Posted on by

Hello there.  I am needing a Father’s Day card, so my card today is an easy masculine card.

Sailing Father's Day card created for challenges Cutsin Call, CAS June Mix Up, CAS with optional twist blue, Fusion Something Blue, Cards in Envy No Girls Allowed

To create the water, I made a couple of edge masks from acetate using snow drifts dies.  I masked the bottom 1″ off with temporary adhesive tape.  Then using the acetate masks, I created sections of water to sponge in different colors of blue distress inks.

The sun is a circle die-cut from watercolor paper then watercolored with distress inks. The sailboat and seagulls were die cut 3 times from white cardstock using the Out To Sea die. I just used my scissors to cut out the images that I wanted from the die. I stacked the 3 sailboats together for dimension, and left the seagulls as a single layer. The greeting is stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed in white on a strip of black cardstock.

I added white fun foam to the panel before mounting it on a top folding white card base. I stamped Happy Father’s Day on the inside to complete my card.
