I think this suite is fabulous…maybe for me it has a particular value as my husband is a keen sailor, but its use for general masculine cards is great , but also for anyone who is embarking on a journey, or for memory keeping for holidays by the sea. Add to that the sentiments that include thanks, congratulations and messages of love and you can see how useful it will be.
The DSP has co-ordinating images, but they have a lightness to them so that they work really well as a background – without dominating.
I do need to mention the fabulous Memories and More cards, they include a fab range of two sizes of cards, but then there are beautifully detailed laser cut cards (sea scape, lighthouse, ships wheels 🙂 ) and fab little accent stickers. I only used a single card from the pack for my card – but I am planning a couple of scrapbook pages soon…and I think they might be staying out on my desk a little longer.
I’ve made stable door cards before, both portrait and landscape, but decided to go for a double effect this time…more of a trifold. It works well when you have a card where you don’t necessarily want the writing on view.
Metric works well here – makes it easy to divide up the card accurately. The imperial version uses the dreaded 1/8s …but hopefully that’s better than going to 16ths
Card 29.7 x 14.5 cm (11-5/8 x 5-3/4 inches)
Score long at 9.9 cm (from both ends) 3-7/8 inches
Turn to portrait and cut top and bottom section at 7.25 cm (2-7/8 inches)
