Happy Sunday to you! We are laying low today as this is the last day of Spring Break however, it's certainly not felt that way! We had snow one day where it was forecasted to be 50! Anyway, the kids have enjoyed themselves and I've had time to craft!
If you follow trends at all then you may know that all things 'NAUTICAL' are in. I've had this little idea in my head to do ever since Timeless Twine by Bella Creationz came out with their Natural Twine. Don't you just LOVE that tiny Sailor's Knot?? I DO.......a LOT! With the current release of Neat & Tangled's On the Strip 2 stamp set, this card came together soo easy! I actually stamped a larger striped panel and just trimmed down to size. My sentiment is selectively inked from the set: Just Hello.
Now for that sailor's knot........you all know Pinterest. The site where hours upon hours of your day can go unaccounted for? I used a tutorial found HERE however, I've made several of these years ago for a card so you can find sources pretty much anywhere on how to make these. For my knot, I just used 4 equal strands of Natural Twine and followed this diagram!
