Welcome to the Ginger Snap Scraps Summer Blog Hop.
If you've just come from Connie's blog, then you are in the right spot.
If you just happened to stop by and want to start from the beginning, click here.
For this fun summer blog hop this weekend, the DT is featuring all things related to summer. You might think of swimming, going to the lake with friends, picnics, sun...well the list goes on forever.
My projects were inspired by the Authentique Fresh paper pad which then made me think of my friends in Connecticut that resulted in a cape cod look and feel to my projects this weekend.
The card is a standard A2 size. All paper is from this little 6x6 paper pad except the base paper. It is the weather wood look, I cannot remember the brand name, sorry.
I used the cuttlebug divine swirls embossing folder for the background and used the Tim Holtz weathered wood distressing ink to slide over the raised swirls to add some color to the sky.
The waves are torn strips of paper from different shades of blue with the top two waves popped up with pop dots so the little boat could sit between the waves.
The sailboat is cut at 2" from the Life's A Beach cart.
The sentiment and ribbon is from Stampin Up.
Now for my favorite thing about this card, the brad and Twine. The brad was something in my stash that I got ages ago, but had the perfect colors to match my card. But what is exciting is the looped twine from Twinery behind it. I found this technique on pinterest here. It was very simple to make.
Here is the back side so you can see how it stays together without a brad. Give it a try.
