Eat Sail Sleep Repeat

It's Tuesday! That means it's time to share another card for The Project Bin.  For today's card, I used the stamp set called Anchors Away.

Here is my card:

I really like this color combination for nautical cards, so fun and vibrant.  Also, this card is pretty typical of how I scrapbook as well.  I have always loved mixing patterned papers together, stripes with dots, dots with plaid, etc.  If it matches, works well together, and is colorful, I am all about it!  I really need to use patterned paper more on my cards... some might say that my craft room is a fire hazard as I have so much of it!  But that's okay, my theory is... whoever dies with the most paper, wins! 😉

I started my card with the background panel by mixing a striped paper with a dotted paper, as mentioned above.  To separate the 2 patterned papers, I ran a strip of very narrow washi tape between them to give it more of a finished look.  Next, I stamped the sentiment onto blue raspberry cardstock using VersaFine Onyx black ink and then I heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it more of a bright, glossy look.  Then, I dusted off a very old, yet well-loved, Quickutz die called Heart in Circle.  It reminded me of a ship window, so I tried to embrace that idea.  I die cut the shape 3 times and stacked them together, then added the silver gems around it for a finishing touch.

I still thought the card need just a little something, so I added the waves in aqua and navy at the bottom of the card for a little more interest.

Thank you for stopping by!
