A4 sized Nautical Card

Hi and thank you for visiting my blog.

Some of the products I have used are available as Last Chance Products – While Supplies last or until 2ndJune 2020.    

See below for the specific items used.

Another nautical themed card today!  I have seen this style of card created a lot recently and wanted to try one for myself.  I made this from a piece of Whisper White A4 Thick cardstock.  On the long side, I scored at 3” and 43/8”, then I rotated the card 180oand scored at 3” and 43/8” again on the opposite end.  On the 3” score lines create a valley fold, on the 43/8” score lines, create a mountain fold.  I used Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper and I had a piece left over from yesterday’s card measuring 41/8” square with an aperture in the centre (where the yacht was cut from).  For the centre of this I cut a piece out from the compass design using the largest square from the Stitched Shape Dies.  I added a piece of tape on the back to join the knotted rope square and the compass, then reinforced this section with a piece of Whisper White on the back.  I measured accordingly and attached Stampin’ Dimensionals ready to add to the card for assembly later.  The background panel measurements are as follows:-

Centre:  8” x 2¾” – 1 piece

Side recess:  8” x 11/8” – 2 pieces

Front facing sides:  8” x 2¾” – 2 pieces

Layering on front facing sides:  4” x 25/8” – 2 pieces

After adhering the panels, I added the compass image with the knotted rope frame to the front.  The sentiment was then added and is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. This was cut using the second smallest oval from the Stitched Shape Dies with two Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back placed towards the top of the oval.
