Sail away with me!

My downline Cristy made this great card for her swap at our last demo meeting using the single stamp Sail Away, with a sentiment from Define Your Life. I love how she paper-pieced the sail and the boat so they are both bright against the Marina Mist sky (such an appropriately-named color!)

TIP: Paper piecing is as easy as pie–just stamp the image once on your base color and then once on another color or pattern. Cut out a selected part of the image, and adhere it directly over the top of that same part on the base color. It's a little more work, but it really adds a lot to a card! And it doesn't add any bulk for mailing.

At just a penny per three inches, the new Baker's Twine from the Summer Mini Catalog is an especially good embellishment to use when making multiples, as well as a great addition to this nautical-theme card (and likewise, not bulky). Click here to see the 2011 Summer Mini online, and shop 24/7!
