Stampin' Up! Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Inkin' Thursday! Are you ready to ink up? You don't have to if you don't want to because it's a sketch week and I'm not using ink! Let me show you the sketch...
No photo description available.

Y'all know I need simplicity in my life at the moment and that's exactly what these card packs provide me. Take a look see.

The Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack features maritime images and I'll list what's in the pack below the hoppers.

I had an already-cut and scored Crumb Cake card base. I do that for every color and store them in the full wide stamp cases by Brights, Subtles, Regals, Neutrals and In Colors. I also have a case for retired colors.

I took the striped 4" x 6" card piece and cut it down to 5" x 3 7/8" and adhered it to the card base with liquid glue. 

Then I had my son die cut the smaller compass design from one of the 3" x 4" double-sided cards using my Layering Circles Dies (I'm not able to do that motion currently). I cut a ship's wheel out of the laser-cut specialty card and adhered it to the compass circle. 

Using the ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, I cut a piece long enough to follow the sketch. I adhered it to the card with glue dots in strategic places. 

The ship's wheel/compass was adhered over the ribbon with Dimensionals.

The "celebrate" is a sticker from the pack.

Now for the inside:

I had a 1/8" strip left over from the mat on the front so I adhered that at the edge and had a piece of Very Vanilla card stock in my stash that was 3 3/4" x 5" so I adhered that with liquid glue after I had flicked it ever so slightly with Crumb Cake ink. The sentiment is another sticker from the pack.

So, I hope whoever receives this will celebrate simply having a great day! It could be for a birthday, a day of feeling good after having a chemo treatment or surgery...the uses are endless. We all need great days. However, I think it might have to go to a man as it looks masculine to me. What do you think?
