Do you know someone that loves sailboats & all things ocean?! Well me too! 💕 So I made them a fun sailboat card to wish them a Happy Birthday!
Let me point out a few fun details that make this card pop a bit. First up is the "ocean" the sailboat is sailing on. I first stamped it a few times on the bottom of my cardstock piece in Coastal Cabana ink. Right after stamping, while it was still wet, I spritzed it with water to let the colors bleed. You still get the texture from the stamp, but it becomes more "organic" with the water spritzing.
And this sailboat is so cute and fun! I stamped the sails in Flirty Flamingo...one I stamped full strength. And one I stamped "off" before stamping again to get a lighter shade of the same color. (Stamping "off" just means to stamp on scrap paper first then stamp again without re-inking.) I stamped the boat in Soft Suede. Then just punched them out! (***Tip for builder punches*** punch the punch using a piece of scrap paper first. Then as you stamp each piece...use the scrap piece as a guide to stamp your pieces. Just line up each stamp over your cardstock, stamp it, and then it is all easily lined up to punch out at once!)
