One Card Wonder Wednesday - December 4, 2019 - Come Sail Away Birthday Card

Hello!

Welcome back to One Card Wonder Wednesday!  I hope everyone is having a great day!  I am!  I was able to get my Christmas decorations up yesterday.  Whoop!  It was a great accomplishment for me as I normally have everything up the day after Thanksgiving.  This year has just been a little hectic for me and I didn't get to it when I wanted to.  But it is up now and I am so happy!

Now with all that said, I have decided to make a card unrelated to Christmas for today's card.  I don't know about you but I always am running out of Birthday cards!  That's because everyone we know has a birthday!  LOL!  We run out because we use them all the time!  
So here is a birthday card for any guy in your life!


How handsome is this card?!  I was so happy with how easy it went together.  Once everything is cut...and I die cut these pieces months ago and had them in an extra stamp case waiting for my inspiration.  Today was the day!  The Come Sail Away Suite is perfect for creating cards for many different occasions.  This birthday card is one of those occasions.  


I hope you are inspired by today's card!  Get your card making supplies out and get started creating a birthday card for someone you love!  Better yet, get a head start on 2020 by creating a stack of birthday cards!

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!
I live & love to inspire you!

THANK YOU!

  2. Cut a piece of Come Sail Aways Designer Series Paper 4in. x 5 1/4in. and adhere to card front using Snail Adhesive.  I chose the Mossy Meadow map design.
  3. From your Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack choose the 3in. x 4in. card that says "Hello Handsome"  Wrap a piece of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine around the card, stringing an anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets onto it and then tying in a knot.

  6. Die cut a Whisper White Label, and a Soft Suede label.  Stamp the sentiment "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" from the Well Said Stamp Set.
  7. Cut the Soft Suede Label in half and adhere it to the back of the Whisper White label making sure it peeks out from behind to create a "frame" around the Whisper White label.
  8. Die cut a Night of Navy rope knot using the Smooth Sailing Dies and then adhere to the HAPPY BIRTHDAY label.  Adhere the label to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  9. Cut a piece of Whisper White Card Stock 4in. x 5 1/4in. and stamp a sail boat in Night of Navy Ink on the lower right hand corner.  Adhere to the inside of the card.  Voila!
