Sail Away - Shabby Book Card

Morning all. Fashionable Stamping Challenges is calling for a nautical theme. Instead of making a masculine card, I decided to try a more faminine shabby look. Since there were several stamp images I wanted to use, I decided to make a book card to fit them all in.

The card measures 5 1/2 x 5 x 1". I fussy-cut out the light house from a 6x6 Webster's Pages DP and used it for decoration. I stamped the sail boat on vellum and colored it with Momento markers. The sheer fabric flower is handmade, see previous post here.

Designer paper is from Webster's Pages and dies used are from Memory Box and Spellbinders.

Hope you enjoy today's visit and thanks for all your sweet comments. Until next time, have a wonderful day.


I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
