Sail away on your birthday

Good morning, hopefully this post is going live on Friday 22nd July while we are away lol.

Today's card is one I made for my son a few weeks ago. I used a Studio Calico map piece of card and then distress inked it with Tim Holtz inks. 

I used a couple of circle dies to create the porthole window and cut the top layer with a wood effect paper from the stash. Then I wrapped a white string twine around it.

The little sailing boat is cut with a Simon Says Stamp die from one of their older kits and the wavey paper is from the same set.

I used the circle from the centre of the porthole plus a smaller stitched circle for the sentiment and stamped it with a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set.

Then I added a smaller sentiment in the top corner from a Mamae Elephant set called Mini Messages.

I inked everything with the same distress inks to make it look a bit aged and then added it all to a 6 x 6 Kraft card blank.

Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
