Sail Away, Sail Away, Sail Away...

     Hello!  Have I mentioned that I {love} the new nautical themed stamps from the Summer Mini?!  I can't put them down!  I grew up minutes from the ocean and spent my summers at the family beach house so these sets remind me of my childhood.
     This card was inspired by Christine Miller's card (here) and my constant need for more masculine birthday cards (man, we've got a lot of men in my family!).  I loved her layout but to make this card more of my own I decided to make it a z-fold and change the main image.
     For my main image I stamped the sail boat once on Sahara Sand in Night of Navy ink and once again on Whisper White.  I cut the sails from the WW card stock and adhered them to the Sahara Sand image.  To give the fold a little bit of interest I tore a piece of Sahara Sand and adhered it to the edge of the fold.
Stamps: Sail Away
Ink: Night of Navy
Paper: Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Nautical Expedition DSP
Tools & Accessories: Baker's twine, brads
