Stampin' Up! - Swirly Birds go nautical for Father's Day!

Hello, I think I have a new favourite stamp set in Swirly Bird!  I do believe I love it more than Gorgeous Grunge ....

I have been using it for a couple of weeks as part of my pre order from the new Annual Catalogue that launches on June 1st.  I have so many ideas flying around in my head that I am having to write them down in case I forget!

I have been asked by a few of my regular Coffee & Card ladies if I can do another class for parents and children in time for June 16th so, here you go ... this is what I have come up with.

My Father is sadly no longer with us but, one of his passions in life was sailing his yacht ...

I highlighted some of the 'sea' with clear Wink of Stella - you can just about see it on the left.  I love this wavy die cut that I have used on top of the stamping, I wrapped it around both sides of the card for a neater finish.

I decorated the inside of the card too - move lovely wavy lines with this very flexible stamp that will be useful for all sorts of things.

I left space at the top of the card for a suitable message, either Father's Day or a male birthday card but I prefer my cards blank. Here is the finished card and its matching envelope:

I used the Bakers Box Thinlets Die to make a matching gift box. I decorated the wooden peg with some of the new Designer Washi Tape (Affectionately Yours) and used a sentiment from Guy Greetings.  You can just about see some of the gorgeous new Ruched Ribbon in Dapper Denim as well  - another of my favourite new products!
