The other day I realized that I’d made lots of cards with the new Sailing Home stamp set but had not posted any here. Hard to imagine since it is really one of my favorite stamp sets from the current catalog! Here’s a thank you card that we made the day I held my new catalog event.

I love Night of Navy with almost any other color, but I think it’s terrific with the Sahara Sand.

Design Notes for Sailing Home Card:

This card was pretty straightforward. I had lots of people at the event so I wanted it to be easy to assemble. I die cut the sail boats for everyone and then all they had to do was to drop it in the Stamparatus and stamp.

When I completed my card, I stamped off some Night of Navy ink for the lighthouse on the inside.

For a final touch, I added some Come Sail Away Designer Paper on the envelope flap.
