Hello Friends and happy day to you.

This card is quick and easy. The New Horizons Designer Series Paper does all the work. Each pattern design is a watercolor work of art! There were a few horizon designs I could have used for the sailboats. I wanted to keep the colors simple and chose this one.

A Tip And A Trick

  • I cut a Blackberry Bliss card base at 5 1/2″ x  8 1/2″.
  • Score the card base at 4 1/4″.
  • There’s a Basic White mat layer that measures 3″ 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ which will frame the patterned paper layer.
  • The patterned paper layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″.
  • There are four sailboats stamped with Night of Navy ink on the blue horizon.
  • I wanted to give the illusion of the sailboats sailing away toward a new adventure.
  • It stamped the sailboat on the left first.
  • I stamped the second sailboat from the left, slightly lower than the first.
  • The third sailboat is even lower… it’s further out to sea!
  • The fourth is leading the pack!
  • I used a scrap of paper to cover the patterned paper, then stamped the image.
  • Below is a photo I snapped so you would have a visual.

  • I love the sentiments for this card. “Congrats” on the front and “Set sail in the direction of your dreams” inside.
  • Perfect for a graduation, promotion or any new endeavor.

So, find or create a great horizon, add a few sailboats and create something adventurous!

… the only limitation is your imagination!
