A closer up view of the stamping for you to see.

  • Baker's Twine: 3 pieces 6 1/2" each adhered to the back separately, one piece 8" long to tie into a bow, glue to center of chocolate chip circle
  • Insert of card, 3 1/2" x 5", Anchor is stamped with Cherry Cobbler Ink, and the verse is stamped with Early Expresso.

Oh this was such a fun card to make.  I just love this new stamp set called The Open Sea, and the matching Nautical Paper.  I made 6 of these cards.  The panel with the ship on gives the illusion that it is designer paper, but actually it was all stamped.  That is what I love about this set that it is so versatile to work with.  And the new Cherry Cobbler Baker's twine is to die for.  So nice and thin and easy to work with.
