Today I have more to share with you made with the new Nantucket line by Pink Paislee. Catherine from Scrapbook and Cards Today asked me to put a little something together for their blog this week. Stay tuned over there for a Nantucket giveaway!
My first card was inspired by a blue and white beachy pillow I found on-line. The Nantucket die cuts were perfect! I layered a few of these along with Nantucket ribbon, punched butterflies from the 6x6 paper pad and a Vintage Vogue wooden spool, also by Pink Paislee.
To create the card, I cut a long piece of white cardstock about and folded the 2 long ends in towards each other, overlapped them in the front and adhered, then stitched along the edges. I punched a hole at the top with a 2" circle punch for inserting money or a gift card for the sweet birthday girl. I added a stamped sentiment by Papertrey Ink from the Mega Mixed Messages stamp set. (I seem to use that one a lot lately.)
The next card was inspired by these frames I saw online. Loved the little weathered strips, so I decided to cut my 6x6 Nantucket papers into strips and randomly sew them together. I didn't want them to be straight. I think it adds to the casual "beachy" feel. Two Nantucket die cuts were added over the top and two wooden pieces from the Nantucket Wood Shapes!
