Sailboat On The Ocean for #CC&S510

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the Colour Challenge over @ CAS Colours & Sketches.  This is my third challenge as guest designer with the team, and I'm loving the opportunity to create with them, hopefully our creations will inspire you!  This months colour challenge is to use Pool Party, Night of Navy & Flirty Flamingo together on your card.  Please click the hyperlink above to visit the challenge.

The Sailboat Builder Punch, #157905 is carrying over into the New Annual Catalogue.  I've added the sentiment from the On The Ocean Stamp Set, #160772.  It was introduced in the January to April 2023 Mini Catalogue with matching On The Ocean dies, #160774, both are available in the new annual catty.  

***   The Trix  ***

*  Use a Blending Brush, #153611 to add a bit of Pool Party ink to the 4" x 5 1/4" Basic White cardstock layer.  I stamped and adhered the sailboat & waves layer first, then adhered the layer to a Thick Basic White card base at the end.

*  Punch out the sailboat from Night of Navy & Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

*  Use the Scalloped Contours Dies, #155560 to create the waves from Pool Party cardstock.  

***Trix, create dimension with layers, 

*  Adhere the first strip of scalloped waves with glue, then adhere the Night of Navy section of the sailboat with glue, adhere the second layer of waves with dimensionals and offset the waves slightly to create a sense of movement.

*  Adhere one Flirty Flamingo sail with glue but adhere the front *Jib sail with dimensionals.

***Trix, lay the waves on the card - without adhesive - to line up & position the sentiment, stamp with Night of Navy and then adhere the sailboat and waves.
