Birthday Sailboat

Hello, my crafty friends!  Happy Friday!  I had about 30 seconds to snap pictures of this card with my phone just before I ran out the door to make it to the post office before they closed.  They are a bit blurry, but I thought I would post anyway.  :)

I cut the card base at 4.88 inches from the Elegant Edges cartridge.  The sailboat was cut at 4.25 inches from the New Arrival cartridge.  I popped all of the layers up with dimensionals.  I also hand cut the blue base of the boat so I could have more layers on this fun cut.  (I wanted the mast to be a different color than the boat.)

I taped one end of the Natural jute twine behind the base of the boat and then wrapped it around the mast, tying it off at the top to attach the tag.  I cut the tag layers with the Tiny Tags metal dies and then stamped a sentiment from the Tiny Tags stamp set.

The jute string is really fun to work with and is this month's deal of the month!

Each color comes in a bundle of 10 yards each
