Vote for my Sailing Home Card for Kylie's International Blog Highlights


Hi, Crafty Happy People!
I've made this serene Thank You card for Kylie's International Blog Highlights. This means I'm asking you to vote for me so I can participate in her Top 10 Blog Hop! CLICK HERE TO VOTE! Look for entry #13.

Now some details about this card. Thanking someone for a kind act you're thankful for will be easy with a card this beautiful and serene. I love going to the beach, looking out over the ocean, and the beautiful sunsets. In fact, I owned a townhouse at Mexico Beach, Florida, until Hurricane Michael wiped out most of the town in 2018. I was left with a concrete slab. I have chosen not to rebuild and sold my property. I do miss it terribly.

The Sailing Home Stamp Set and the Smooth Sailing coordinating dies are the focal point of this card. I also decided to try out the new Layering Diorama Dies to give it an interesting perspective.
If you look closely at the Crumb Cake frame, you will see I used the Macramé Embossing Folder. To give it added interest and dimension, I patted Soft Suede ink on the embossing folder before running it through our Cut and Emboss Machine.
I


Cajun Craze, Misty Moonlight, and Mango Melody inks were used to create the sunset.

The second Diorama layer is Balmy Blue card stock sponged with Misty Moonlight ink. Shaded Spruce beach plants are peaking out around the edges.

I hope you like my card and will take a minute to vote here for my card. Just click on the heart in the upper right-hand corner.

I don't CASE many cards from our Annual Catalog, but the card on page 51 caught my eye. See if that card looks familiar!
