The idea for this popped into my head as I was pondering what I could create for PrincessM’s and Little Man’s upcoming birthday. Little Man likes orange and blue, and he kinda likes boats. I don’t have any car or football stamps, so I thought a boat would be the next best thing.
This is a variation of this card by Debbie Olson, which is featured on the Papertrey Ink product page. I received my new Lil’ Inker dies a week or so ago, and I wanted to use this stitched rectangle mat die as soon as I could find a chance to do so.
The water portion was cut from PTI’s Enchanted Evening DP using their medium scallop border die. I used the negative-cut side. The boat is from the Men of Life stamp set, and the flag is from the Little Princess stamp set. I stamped 2 of the sails and fussy cut one set to pop on dimensional adhesive.
Obviously, I only went with a smidgen of some of the colors. 😉
