Come Sail Away Anniversary card

Yesterday was my 47th wedding anniversary.  Wow, I can't believe it's been so long because it still seems like yesterday!

Here is the card I made for my husband



Being at the beach and only a day after Father's Day, I didn't have a lot of time to make my cards.  He was gone for the weekend so I was able to do a little crafting at night.  Using the Come Sail Away Memories & More cards made this much easier!  

The base of the card is soft suede, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4".  I topped that with a piece of whisper white 5 1/4" x 4" and cut out with the rectangle stitched dies.  That piece was topped with a Memories and More card that I stamped the sentiment on with Soft Suede.  I added 3 gold pearls (colored bronze with my Blends) just below the sentiment.  Linen thread was wrapped around that piece and tied into a knot before attaching to the card base.

I stamped the lighthouse and the compass in Soft Suede and then die cut them using the Smooth Sailing Dies and the Layering Circles dies.  I die cut the compass needle out of Soft Suede and attached to the compass with a glue dot.  I added a gold (colored bronze with my bronze Blends) pearl to the top.

The inside was fairly easy using two Memories and More cards trimmed down to fit side by side.  The sentiment on the inside is from Itty Bitty Greetings.
