Nautical Gift Set

What great images for the nautical lover! These cards and gift box will be going to our friend who took us sailing up the Chesapeake in May.


You don't always have to stamp your image on plain card stock. The sailboat image from the Sail Away stamp set was stamped directly onto the background sheet of Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper. Both items are available in the Summer Mini Catalog. The sails were stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and paper pieced to the sailboat image.

The box for the cards was created using my Card Set Tutorial. I love this boxed set and find myself using it often.

I'd love to hear what paper crafting gift you go to over and over again. Before you leave share your favorite in the comments below!
