Nautical Stripes, By the Tide, Stampin’ Up

Lobster anyone? I myself am a fan of steamed Blue crabs, or just “CRABS” if you’re from Maryland 🙂  I actually made the first card last May of 2015, from a card I saw on Pinterest. It was for a friends birthday,  which is near Memorial Day, so the red,  white and blue went along nicely! She also is a lover of the sea, so easy choice. Then , not long ago a fellow stamper, Dena Rekow, of  thecreativitycave had a video on this,  and it looked so cute! I thought …..I need to make this card, well low and behold, I already did….sort of and I just had forgotten. So I made another one, and one more, and I really  just love this style card. Hers’ had the beautiful flower dies from the Botanical Builder framelits set….also just as gorgeous…..drop by and visit her site…..and I hope you have a warm sunny tomorrow!



All cards have a 4 1/4″ by 11″ base scored at 5 1/2″ of Night of Navy, with four   3/4″ by 4 1/4″ Whisper White Strips (attached in your visually preferred order), a second piece of Whisper White for the inside cut at 4″ by 5 1/4″, a 3″ by 4 1/4″ piece of Chery Cobbler,and  a 2 3/4″ by 4″ piece of Very Vanilla. A piece of thick bakers twine in Baked Brown Sugar(clearance rack) or Very Vanilla would also work nicely!
