Ladies Card Ministry- Card #3- Nautical Thinking of You

Hi Again Stampers! 

This is the final card that we created this past weekend at our Ladies Ministry Class (again, the other two cards are in previous posts- card # 1 and card #2)

We had a great time but if we are able to fellowship and stamp again, we most likely will only stamp two cards versus three due to the time

To create the Nautical Thinking of You card:

Start off with two pieces of Whisper White cardstock- one piece 4 ¼” x 5 ½” and the second piece would be 2 ½” x 3 ½”.   

Ink up a brayer with Pool Party Classic Ink apply onto the two pieces of Whisper White cardstock using a light touch and a random pattern.  Ink another brayer with Marina Mist (or clean off the first one by rolling off the excess ink onto scrap paper before inking with the darker ink) and apply, again with a very light touch over the Pool Party background in the opposite direction leaving some white spaces.

Ink the script stamp from By The Tide using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper and then repeatedly stamp onto the smaller piece of brayered background paper.   Ink the coral image using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp directly to the background in the lower left hand corner, re-ink the stamp and stamp again in the lower right hand corner.

Ink the fish, shell (two images) and Nantucket stamp using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp directly onto the larger piece of brayered background paper.  Ink up the sentiment from Wetlands using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp onto this panel as well.

Punch out the sentiment using the Large Oval Punch and the Nantucket image using the ¾” Circle Punch and carefully cut out the other images by hand (fussy cut).

Lightly sponge Midnight Muse Classic Ink over the edges of the images and mount the Nantucket image onto two circles of Midnight Muse cardstock layered together but spread apart to leave a bit of an edge.  Sponge the edges of the smaller background panel using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and layer this panel onto a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock and a strip of Midnight Muse cardstock.

Layer the Whisper White onto another piece of Midnight Muse cardstock and add the horizontal strip of Midnight Muse cardstock. 

Add the knotted twine to the corners of the background panel (fray the edges after knotting) and adhere the panel to the background using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Add the fish, shells, Nantucket image and sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
