Sailboat Card

Do you remember the Sailboat SVG freebie cutting file I posted a couple weeks ago? I thought I'd show you what I made with it.  First I brought the file into Make the Cut and created a full card layout with it. I made the clouds by merging some ovals and circles together, then I duplicated the waves and did a little node editing to add the second layer of waves.
Next I cut out all the pieces.  Here they are before assembly, the clouds have been embossed but nothing else has been done yet.

And finally, here is the finished card. I used a piece of crumpled paper towel and dabbed white ink onto the background to create some subtle clouds.  Then I inked the edges of the clouds and sails with Tim Holtz Broken China ink and sanded the boat to scuff it up a bit. I added some bakers twine for the ropes, and used dimensional adhesive to pop up the small cloud and the top layer of waves.  I also puffed out the small sail before gluing it down, to give the illusion of wind.

What a difference a little ink and dimension can make to the finished card!
