Every summer, I am always telling my husband, “Let’s go somewhere awesome and do something fun”.   What a perfect card to give him as we celebrate summer together.  Who knows where this year’s adventure will take us!  I’m hoping it’s to Seattle to visit our son.  Enjoy today’s quick and easy card!

This card is so quick and easy, it doesn’t need a lot of explanation.  Three easy steps and ten minutes are all it takes to bring this card to completion.

Here are the paper measurements:  Night of Navy cardstock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″); Whisper White cardstock (scraps); Come Sail Away Memories & More card (trimmed to 5-1/4″ x 4″)

1.  Score the Night of Navy cardstock at 4-1/4″.  Fold and crease to form the card base.

2.  Trim the Memories & More card down to 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Wrap Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine twice around the bottom of the card and tie in a bow. Adhere to the card base using dimensionals.
