Hello everyone, on this last day of June! I hope you have had a great week! My American friends are looking forward to a long holiday weekend and the 4th of July holiday so I'm here with a nautical themed card with red, white and blue accents. I love nautical cards for Summer, but in a city with a Naval Air Station, you can send nautical cards year round, especially one with this kind of sentiment.
I used a Stampendous stamp set and paper-pieced the sails, sponging the clouds in the sky with a scalloped circle mask. The focal image is framed along the right side with a trio of anchor brads, and along the bottom with a strip of striped washi tape which, in this clean and simple design, both help to lead the eye toward the sentiment.
Inside, another strip of washi tape forms a border ending with a single anchor. (If you really like clean and simple designs, this could work for a card front!)
Enjoy your weekend!
Beautiful, Deb! I live near a Naval Air Station as well.ReplyDelete
