The sailboat is a die by Whimsy and I cut 2 white ones out and glued the papers together. Then I cut a sail out of the striped paper and glued it on top of the white main base. then I cut out a yellow boat and glued that on. Then...getting tired of reading this?...Then, I took a white sharpie and went around the entire sailboat for an outline and even colored a mast. The last thing was to color the flag red with a red gel pen. The sailboat is nice and heavy and firm and reminds me more of a cardboard cutout texture. It won't bend or crease if I mail this card anywhere.
I'm a supply collector. I bought this paper in January 2013 when I was a GDT for Whimsy and just now opened the paper pack; the seashells are a gift from my fab husband from Christmas 2013 (I don't use many stickers but didn't have the heart to tell him so I've kept them on my table for 16 months figuring I'd use them some day and be sure to show him that I did so he'll give me more supplies in the future, only now he knows more of what I use and like); the sentiment stamp is from 2012 when I bought a set of Hero 'summer' stamps in a plastic container at Hobby Lobby because I wanted ONE of the stamps in the container (and now I don't know which one I wanted or why); the rope is something I bought at a convention in the early 2000's (and I have no idea why I bought it then, but it's coming in handy now!); and, the ribbon comes from a Christmas package I received this past December and couldn't bear to toss it because it's wired and beautiful red satin.
My hint to everyone: You MUST collect paint chips on your trips to Home Depot, Lowe's or anywhere you see them! I mean, seriously...they're fabulous for diecuts since they're heavier than cardstock and have a wonderful finish to them! I've even seen them used as card bases. So when it comes to supplies, I'm your girl. If I don't have it now, I did at one time and either used it up or gave it away. If I never had it...well, then it wasn't worth having.
