Today’s hop features the gorgeous new Learning to Sail stamp set as well as the Flourished Trim Die. For my card I used one of the sentiments from this set as my focal point. I LOVE this sentiment and I am so fond of this style of larger graphic sentiment. The paper I used is Echo Park’s This and That Charming. I haven’t had much of a chance to use this paper pad yet and I thought it went perfectly with this set. I stamped both of the suns from the stamp set on patterned paper, two times each, and fussy cut them, layering the centers to create dimension. I sponged everything on the card with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and distressed the edges with a Prima Distress tool. To finish the card off I used the Pennant Trim Die (I am really loving this die!) and the Flourished Trim Die with a bit of Bisque Liquid Pearls.

Don’t miss out on the Anni-VERVE-sary sale going on now!
