Waving Hello

Here is a quick and simple card for you today.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4," and made from dark purple card stock.  The blue mat was cut with a rectangle from "George and Basic Shapes."  I used Cricut Craft Room to size it at 5 3/8"x4 1/8," this required turning off the aspect ratio.  I used the rectangle found on page 116 of the handbook.

The waves are from the "Going Places" cartridge.  They were cut at a length of 5 3/8," and I cut three of them.  They are on page 113 of the handbook, I hid the sailboat since I only wanted the waves.

The sailboat and sentiment are both Paper Smooches stamps.  They are both from the Wicked Nauticool stamp set.  I stamped the sailboat on white card stock, fussy cut it out, then colored in the mast and body of the boat with the vintage photo Distress Marker by Tim Holtz.  I adhered it so that it was slightly under the second layer of waves.  The sentiment is not actually one long one, but stacked with waving above hello.  I masked it off to create the long one since it worked better with the layout of my card.  It is stamped in black Versafine ink by Tsukineko.

And now the inside:

I cut more of the blue card stock at the same size, 5 3/8"x4 1/8," this time I did it with my straight trimmer though.  I then cut a white piece of card stock at 5 1/8"x3 7/8."  I used more Paper Smooches stamps for the inside as well.  The sentiment is from the Word Up set.  I then added a heart and some waves, both from the Wicked Nauticool set again.  The heart was stamped in purple hydrangea ink by Tsukineko and the sentiment and waves were stamped in the black Versafine ink again.  I then added a little bit of blue to the waves with the tumbled glass Distress Marker by Tim Holtz.

I made this for the following challenges:
Color Throwdown: color combination

CASology: cue card - sea

Paper Smooches Sparks: anything goes

Fantabulous Cricut: anything goes
