Simon Says Stamp Sail Away Card

Hello, everyone! I'm excited to be back today with a card using the July kit from Simon Says Stamp (Sail Away). It's an awesome kit with a nautical feel. Probably one of my favorites!

I'm going to be linking up today's card to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week is Anything Goes!!

Let's just jump right in to my card!

I just love this one! It's so feminine! A lot of nautical cards have the same old red, blue, white color scheme and I wanted to step outside of the box! 

I started by stamping all of my images and coloring them with Copic markers. I tried to use an ombre effect on the waves to give some dimension!

Once everything was colored and cut out, I cut down a piece of Kraft cardstock to be a bit bigger than a standard A2 card. This one is actually 5 1/2 x 7 inches. I prepped my card and stamped down my sentiment and embossed it with white powder. 

Then came the fun part! - Deciding where to put all of my pieces! Some are on foam tape and others are adhered straight down.

Once everything was glued in place I added some strips of washi tape....Just because! Then I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter marker with a very heavy hand to give the card some shimmer! 

I hope you enjoyed this card! I'll be back soon!
