I used the Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect and Thoughtful Branches stamp sets to create my card to share today.
My card design was inspired by Mojo Monday 459.
The nautical theme for my card was inspired by Global Design Project #GDP047.
And the colors for my card were inspired by Color Throwdown 404.
I started by cutting a panel from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack into three strips. I stamped the bird images from the Wetlands stamp set in Soft Suede ink over the three panels and then adhered the DSP panels to a panel of Crumb Cake card stock with SNAIL. I adhered the layered panel to a Bermuda Bay card base with Stampin’ Dimemsionals.
I stamped the #2 starfish image from the Picture Perfect stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I stamped the starfish image four additional times in Crumb Cake ink on the panel and then adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Berumda Bay card stock with SNAIL. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I punched the end of the panel with the Banner Triple Punch and then wrapped a strand of Gold Baker’s Twine (from the Baker’s Twine Trio Pack available Sept 1) several times around the sentiment banner and then tied a knot.
I adhered the sentiment banner to the card front with SNAIL on the right and a Stampin’ Dimensional on the left. I added a gold enamel dot from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.
I stamped the starfish image from the Picture Perfect stamp set three times across a Whisper White card stock panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Crumb Cake card stock and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base with SNAIL.
