Boating with Swirly Bird and Man’s Best Friend

May life be filled with fond memories, like boating with a friend.

All the Deets

Do you ever sit down in your craft room and realize that you really need to clean and organize if before you can even begin your current project? That’s how this card-making adventure began – with the stuff on my desk, AND THERE WAS A LOT OF STUFF!

So I created a whimsical card for you with the Stampin’ Up! Swirly Bird stamp set and Swirly Scribbles framelits. It all started with the background paper. The pack of Stampin’ Up! Naturally Eclectic paper was staring at me from the pile. As I looked at it, it seemed like it could be an evening sky, so that’s what I went with.

Once I had chosen the background, using the Swirly Scribbles framelits, I cut the waves twice, once in Night of Navy and once in Whisper White. Then I fitted the white pieces back into the spaces on the navy piece to finish off the wave and give the card a lighter look.

The boat, tow rope, doggie surfboard and scarf are stamped in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White cardstock. The little dog from the Stampin’ Up! Bike Ride stamp set is stamped in Sahara Sand and Tuxedo Black Memento ink, and die cut with the coordinating Build a Bike framelit dies.

How About Lots of Labels too?

The Whisper White label is die cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits, and stamped with the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink  It just seemed appropriate for this little evening boating adventure!

To embellish the card just a bit, I sponged the label edges with Flirty Flamingo ink and added 3 small hearts from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes. Happy Sailing!
