Being summer my thoughts turned to the ocean and nautical themed decor. I grew up in Hawaii and sometimes miss the ocean and beach SO much! I did a bit of looking on Pinterest for inspiration and really loved the elements of horizontal stripes,cream, navy blue and red so that's what I pulled from for my card.
I pulled out some fabulous Inspired By Stamping sets that were perfect for a nautical theme. I started by stamping my background panel using Background Basics Lines in Memento Luxe ink in Nautical Blue.
My circles were die cut using Fancy Labels 3 and then stamped with Cute Circles. For my sentiment I used one from Big Hope. I thought the faith one was appropriate for a nautical theme, don't you think?
My focal image was stamped and colored 3 times using the Summer Postcards Add on set. I colored them with Copics. To finish I added some machine stitching and a bit of jute twine. I hope this brightens your day!
