Wishing You An Amazing Day!


Hello, friends!  I have a card to share today using the July APG Die of the Month. 

My card today uses July's Amazing Paper Grace (APG) Die of the Month and Clear Stamp Set of the Month.  This month's APG is a Pop Up 3D Vignette Home Sweet Home.  I looked at the pieces of the die set and chose to showcase the versatility of some of the dies and create a large sailboat. This is a 5X7 card. I started with white card stock trimmed smaller than the card base. I ink blended a panel using sky blue, summer shower, seaside, and storm inks. I set the panel aside to dry. 

I die cut the roof top die from the APG Kit  in navy cardstock to create the sailboat.  I used one of the strip dies included in the kit to add a white trim across the top of the boat.  I used the same piece to create the mast. I used some doe ink to color it. For the sails, I used my trimmer to die cut two triangles. 

For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from the Clear Stamp Set of the Month using versafine onyx black ink. I added some foam tape to the elements and added them to the ink blended panel. I added the panel to a side folding 5X7 white card base.   I chose to die cut the layered top portion using white card stock.   I finished the card with a few clear sequins.
