Ahoy, Stampers!

I may live in a landlocked state, but the nautical look is everywhere. I love the bold colors and the strong patterns. Nautical denotes summer, water, and warmth—all things I love.

I recently bought a pair of navy and white striped shoes. Love ‘em! They were pretty much my inspiration for a couple of simple nautical-themed projects.

First, I made an easy card by cutting strips of Midnight Muse Cardstock and adhering them to a Whisper White card base. My greeting is embossed in Whisper White on Real Red Cardstock. This is a simple card, but the stripes make it bold and striking.

I also created a banner. I tried to replicate the look of nautical flags. There’s a ton of inspiration online for different nautical flag patterns. This would make a darling theme for a backyard BBQ or summer birthday party. However you choose to infuse nautical elements into your projects, just let your creativity set sail!
