Still Sailin’


While I had the Sail Away stamp sitting on my awesome crafting desk (thanks, honey!) I made one more card:

Still Sailing Note of Thanks

  • Sailing Away and Thank You Kindly stamp sets
  • Whisper White, Poppy Parade and Marina Mist card stock
  • Early Espresso Classic ink pad
  • Marina Mist and Poppy Parade Classic ink refills
  • Aquapainter
  • Early Espresso Baker’s twine

Don’t you love that twine?  It’s mail-worthy!!  Stampin’ Up! calls it Bakers Twine, but I think it looks pretty nautical, and I’m sure it will find a spot on many cards.  As will this sailboat, which has turned out to be much more fun than I anticipated.

Funny thing, but I’m not a huge fan of the wind.  I know it doesn’t make much sense to rapsodize about the romance of sailing when you don’t like wind, but contradiction is my middle name.  However, I would never wish the trade winds away because if you don’t have trades you have icky sticky humidity.  I just want those trade winds to be reasonable…gentle and soothing and cooling, not gusting and blowing sand and dirt and my hair every which-a-way.  Is that so much to ask?

  1. Dang Anne, I absolutely love this. I live near a river that always has sailboats on it and this so reminds me of that…. I never would have thought to make multiple boats….. Fantastic card idea……thx for sharing your creativity
