From what I have seen on Pinterest, the Sailing Home suite looks like the set everyone wants in the new catalog! Well, I love it too. This card was inspired by a Shoebox Swap card I did a few weeks ago. The swap card was designed by Judy Sumner at JudySumner.StampingUp.net. Because it was a Demonstrator Shoebox Swap, she kept it simple(workshop perfect) and used just Navy and a Pool Party layer embossed with the Subtle Textures Folder.
I wanted to try adding a little Crumb Cake and the Braided Linen Ribbon for a rustic look. I loved the original card design and this design paper is my favorite in the set. But, I also wanted something that looked like it had rope on it. I always layer on too much, but this time and inspired by Judy’s clean card, I managed to keep it simple and used only a knotted scrap of Braided Linen, a length of Braided Linen as a layer and a single Gold Metallic Pearl. The Metallic Pear seemed to look better than a charm. So I went with it! Judy’s idea of creating texture with the Subtle Textures Embossing folder was great, so I did that too. And that was it! A great card with just a few supplies!
