You Float My Boat
This adorable Valentine's Day card was created for the latest Just Us Girls challenge. I love the colors in the inspiration photo and knew with the nautical theme that I had to crack out my Lawn Fawn Float My Boat stamp set. I wanted to do something fun and whimsical with this set, which is really what Lawn Fawn stamps embody. I started with some fun patterned papers from Pebbles Americana 6x6 paper pad. I really scored a nice find on this at Tuesday Morning...only $2.99 a pack so I picked up several. If you have a Tuesday Morning in your area you definitely need to go check them out and see what fun crafting goodies you can find. Anyway, back to the card. I started with a fun and graphic piece of the patterned paper with nice bright pops of color. I cut a zig zag out of some navy blue paper using a die from My Favorite Things. Using some white cardstock from Staples I stamped the wave from the stamp set using two different blue inks from Gina K designs...navy and ocean mist. I then scattered a random stamping of the heart around using the navy ink. I matted that focal piece onto a piece of navy cardstock from Hobby Lobby and popped it up off of the card base using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I stamped the boat image three times and fussy cut it out and then cut the sails from the patterned papers, adhered them onto the images, and then popped them up using dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set using navy ink and cut a fishtail banner and adhered it to the card with foam dimensionals. I think it turned out pretty cute and I hope you like it too!
