For today’s card, I experimented with snaking twine back and forth under the sentiment. It didn’t turn out the way I thought it would, but I still like it. I think it has a nautical feel – the thick twine reminds me of rope and the blue reminds me of the water. It a great card for a guy, or any sailor in your life. I used the Mixed Borders stamp set and a color palette of Marina Mist and Whisper White.


Here’s what I made:

Sweet blue card made with Mixed Borders stamp set by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Marina Mist card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Marina Mist Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5″ x 1″
  • Marina Mist CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 1-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside

Stamped with the Mixed Borders stamp set:

  • border and sentiment in Marina Mist ink onto Whisper White CS strip

Assembled the card:

  • DSP glued onto front of card base
  • Fast Fuse applied to DSP across where the sentiment strip will go
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals applied to DSP where the sentiment strip will go
  • Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine adhered to Fast Fuse snaking in and out of the Stampin’ Dimensionals, so the loops will show once the sentiment strip is on (see photo below)
  • Whisper White CS sentiment strip glued to Marina Mist CS strip
  • Marina Mist CS strip adhered to Stampin’ Dimensonals
  • 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White CS glued to inside of card base
