Smooth Sailing | By Jeanne Jachna

I hope you’re having a great day!  Masculine cards seem to be a struggle sometimes, but they’re a breeze with the new nautical images in the store!  Two new stamp sets you’ll find include Let Your Dreams Sail and Let Your Light Shine. Both sets have coordinating die cuts making them easy to create scenes.
The new Waves Plates are easy to assemble.   Just choose three shades of card stock, cut them and assemble them.   I chose a dark navy for the most detailed layer (A) and then slightly lighter shades for Layers B & C.  Don’t you love the stitching?  While the swirly curves make the most beautiful ocean waves I can’t help but think of Van Gogh’s Starry Night!
This background is so pretty you might not want to cover it up!   I added a sailboat from Let Your Dreams Sail.  The sentiment is perfect for your favorite guy’s special day !Sometimes images can get lost on a busy background.  I approach the layered background the same way I do pattern paper.  I break up the patterns by adding some solid card stock.   The solid card stock die cut circles as a sun takes the focus off the background and makes the perfect setting for the sailboat.  The Stitched Circle Layers are from Memory Box.
