Don’t you just love Night of Navy? I used that cardstock to create the card base. Then I added in some Balmy Blue and Soft Suede elements. Not to mention, the Sail Away Trinket and the yummy baker’s twine.

I used a color wash technique to create the background on the stitched circle. Because I used Shimmery White cardstock, I didn’t have to worry about the cardstock pilling. And, it has a shimmery look! Our Stampin’ Blends made coloring the sailboat very easy.

To finish off the inside of the card, I added a Whisper White mat. I then added one of the Washi Tapes that comes in the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape pack. Here’s how I put this one together.

Here’s how the magic happens.
