I made this card for a friend's birthday using lots more snippets.
I cut two pieces of white card slightly smaller than the front of the card and die cut a stitched circle in the centre of both pieces. I layered the panels before attaching a piece of pale blue vellum to the rear of the aperture and then attaching the panel to the card front, I die cut two waves from snippets of blue textured card and then die cut the bottom of each with the stitched circle so I could inlay them into the aperture. The reason I had attached two white panels to the front of the card was so the front would lie flat when I inlaid the two waves.
I used dark blue ink to stamp the sailing boat onto a snippet of white card. This was coloured with Promarkers before being cut with the coordinating die. I attached a tiny snippet of white card to the back of the sails and then slipped the bottom of the boat between the two waves - the tiny piece of card on the back of the sails made the boat stand out from the vellum background.
I took a Happy Birthday sentiment and masked the 'birthday' before stamping 'happy' onto a snippet of white card and then embossing it with clear embossing powder. I die cut a medium sized cloud with 'happy' in the centre and then die cut a small cloud from another tiny piece of white card. I stamped 'birthday' onto white card and embossed it before using the coordinating die to cut the sentiment. I then cut another couple of sentiments from more snippets of white card - these were trimmed down and attached to the back of the stamped sentiment so it would lie flat across the aperture. The clouds and 'birthday' were then attached to the card.
