DT Post by Karen - Sweet Sailboat Shape Card!

Happy Thursday, crafty friends! This is Karen from Kaleidoscopic Sparkles with a short (but sweet) post! :o)

Shaped cards are always amongst my favorites, but I especially love that they pack a sweet punch when you don't have a ton of time available. I wanted to pour a ton of detailing into this, but the clock was against me! That is the beauty in shaped cards... this little sailboat will soon be fluttering straight into the heart of a precious baby girl named Violet who is in need of extra love and sunshine.

Because Violet is only 1 year old, I made it bright and whimsical! The sailboat is from the Silhouette Online Store and I decorated it with fun butterfly, heart, and polka dot Doodlebug papers. These sweet butterflies are fluttering over to Violet, guiding the sailboat with a base of love.

The sweet sentiment is from Stamping All Around Spring, which I've cut out with the coordinating Tiny Doilies metal dies and layered with a Tiny Doilies 2 stitched base. My flag on top was created with the Lacy Banners metal die set, which I've adorned with her sweet name. Kids always love personalization. :o)

For further details on this card and precious Violet, sail on over to my blog! :o) Thank you for visiting and I wish you a blessed day!

  5. Your card is so sweet looks like a sailboat that winkin' blinkin' and nod would've used to sail a wee one off to dream land.
    You are probably to young to know what I'm even talking about (LOL)
    You are a very super talented gal.
