Sailing Away

Hey Y'all, 

Okay so my last post stated I made two card with the Authentique Explore paper collection I received from Tamra's shop CountryCraftCreations.

To begin I used one sheet of the 12x12 cut in half to make these two cards, this will be the base of your card. I might have cute them a little short after I folded them. 

Second card - 
So after cutting the 12x12 sheet I wanted to add some color to the background and used the BoBunny Bronze spray mist. Now I have to warn you, when I sprayed it, it looked black and dark splotches and I thought "OH NOOOO"!!! But then it dried and I said, "OHHHH YEAAAA!!!" lol   
once it all dried I took the blue sheet of the 12x12 cut it and distressed it with my scissors and inked it up, placed my brads and adhered it sideways. 
I then took a 3x4 Pocket card sprayed with a little water, crumpled it up to a tiny little ball. Unfolded and blew dry just a little and added my ink around it, distressed the edges a little, and adhered. I added that "Gorgeous" seambinding from Tamra's shop, which added a perfect accent to the card. :D  A little stamp in the corner from the sticker sheet. (love the sticker sheet)  and finished. 

For the inside of the card I used one of the 3x4 Pocket Crafting cards. Stamped Happy Father's Day and adhered. I think using the Pocket cards is a great way to attached your sentiment to the card. Plus no cutting. :D
