Hi friends, Eloise here and today I have a card to share with you all using the Let Your Dreams Sail Stamp Set along with just the A Plate from the Waves Plate Die. I’ll also be pulling in some Distress Inks to create a simple sunset background.
To begin my card today I started off with die cutting my background panel. I used the Waves Plate A Die and die cut it from some white cardstock. I used an exact knife to cut away some of the top excess waves, since I only wanted the waves to be focused along the bottom of the panel. I kept the frame in tact though, since I wanted it to frame off my design. Now my frame had been altered, I stamped out my sailboat from the Let Your Dreams Sail set and coloured it in with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.
(Copic Markers Used: BG11, BG32, BG23, BG49 / N0 N2, N4 / 0 / E53, E55, E57 / Y11 Y15, Y19)
Now I was ready to work on the background. I first used the Waves Plate Die Cut as a template and traced the top of the waves onto some masking tape. I then cut it out with scissors and used it to mask off some watercolour paper. I used Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed for the sunrise/sunset part of the background. I then used the negative mask and ink blended some Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean at the bottom section.
Now my background was done, I adhered my Waves background over the top. I then stamped some of the birds from Let Your Dreams Sail Stamp Set around the background and white heat embossed those. I then adhered my sailboat over the top as well. To finish off, I stamped the ‘Sail’ sentiment directly on the background with black ink and then white heat embossed the additional ‘Let Your Dreams Set’ sentiment onto a thin strip of black cardstock and adhered it to my card as well.
That finished off my card for today, I hope you enjoyed. The video is linked down below if you would like to watch it.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I’ll catch you next time.

Eloise, what a great idea to alter the Waves plate A to create a beautiful sailing scene which makes me wish I was on the boat relaxing! TFS!
