Father's Day Primary Colors Sailboat Card

If you visited my blog yesterday, you probably saw a card where I used these acetate overlay sheets.  Well, I just loved the look so much that I immediately made a new card with another color!  Wow, they are so much fun.  Here is a photo of the package, in case you are interested.  I got it at A.C.Moore for only $2.99!  They are also available various online stores, I also saw one in metallics.  Awesome!

(Click on photos for more detail.)

I needed to get working on more Father's Day cards, so I made this fun one with primary colors.  I stamped each boat, then die cut it out and sponged ink over the piece with the die still in place. I love this look.  



The cardstock I picked for my base is such a great sunshiny yellow, but it looks doubly fabulous with the acetate sheet over top.  I took extra photos today so that you could see the awesome shine.  It really takes the card to a whole new level.





The acetate cuts very easily in my Fiskars paper trimmer.  Those red enamel embellishments are so fun, I wish I knew what they were called because I would get more of them in more colors.  

Supplies: Gina K Designs By the Sea stamp set, Hero Arts Red Royal, Butter Bar and Navy ink, distress inks for sponging, My Favorite Things Pierced Squares Dies, Gina K Wild Dandelion cardstock, We R Memery Keepers Acetate pad, embellishment from my stash

Thanks so much for stopping by!
