Enjoy the Journey

Hooray for Friday! 🙂

Today’s Paper Smooches card is a nod to Dad and SUMMER! 😉

For this card panel, I cut several strips of red cardstock and adhered it all to a piece of copy paper, alternating strips of white cardstock along the way. (I don’t measure the strips width, I just eyeball it.) I trimmed all the edges to make it *square* and then die cut the Paper Smooches Sailboat into the center. I always hold my breath a little when I cut into something that took some time to lay up. Truth be told, it wouldn’t be tragic to recreate the panel, just time. 🙂 I then die cut the Sailboat from different colored cardstocks and inlaid it all. I think this turned out fun! 🙂I stamped the sentiment simply and trimmed it out, before adhering with foam adhesive and polishing off the whole thing with some simple stitching. A great card for Father’s Day this year!
