Nautical Thanks

Two challenges inspired my card today.  Addicted to Stamps and More #350, Photo Inspiration and
Freshly Made Sketches #397

I created the stripes with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and the Ombre Stripes stencil from Altenew.
The anchors are Savvy dies - stacked three layers. The debossed stripe along the endges of the red panel were created with a My Favorite Things die. The tiny thanks (an older Verve stamp) was white heat embossed.

A dear book club friend lives on a lake and every August she hosts our meeting aboard their boat. Her husband motors us around to a restaurant up lake, and then after our dinner takes us all around the lake until sunset.  This will be the thank you card I send them this year.  It's always a very special evening!


  1. Such a fun mix! That pattern is so perfect with the little anchors!! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. Wow, what a fun nautical theme! Your August book club meeting sounds like a lot of fun and I'm sure your friend will adore this card. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. Wow! This is one fantastic CAS design. Blue pattern and anchor combo look stunning. Thank you for joining us at ATSM!
