I am calling this card Sail Away using the Triple Time technique for this card that I made with the Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Suite of products. It is a fitting card for this hot weather that we have been having. There have certainly been a lot of great boating day this Summer!
I took a little different approach to the Triple Time technique with this card. With other cards, the whisper white cardstock is cut first and then pieced back together on a scrap piece of paper to stamp the image. Since Stampin’ Up! now have these great nesting dies, I used the nesting dies to cut my image into even layers after I stamped the images.
Here are the details for this card.
The Card base is Night of Navy cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4″. Next is a mat cut of Seaside Spray cardstock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.
Next I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 3 3/4″ x 5″. Stamp the water across the bottom of the white with seaside spray ink and the wave stamp from the Hightide Stamp set. Next I used the birds from the Hightide Stamp set and stamped those across the top of my cardstock with Night of Navy ink. Next I stamped a couple of the sailboats randomly in the water using Night of Navy ink.
Then stamp the Lighthouse from the Sailing Away stamp set and one boat using Night of Navy ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Cut these pieces with the coor
dinating dies and set aside.
Next select the second largest Nested Label Die and the die two sizes smaller. Line these up on your stamped image and run this piece through your cutting machine. The result is your piece cut into 3 pieces that fit together.
Use the Largest Nested Label Die and the one that is one size larger than the smaller die that you used in the previous step to cut two layers from a piece of Night of Navy cardstock.
Attach the stamped pieces to the night of navy layers.
