Daring Cardmakers - Elemental Inspiration

Hello everyone and welcome back to the weekly challenges from the team at Daring Cardmakers.

As its the first Friday of the month and the year we have a beautiful inspiration picture for you.  
Our host is the lovely Nat who has picked the image below to celebrate the Pantone 2020 colour of the year of Classic Blue.

Remember you need to pick 3 elements from the image below and the colour counts as one element.

I have picked the colour blue, a nautical theme (there is a picture of a ship and the sea) and rectangles.

I made a little shadow box type card so I could create a little scene inside the card. 

 I found the tutorial over at Jennifer Mcguire Ink.

I also used my favourite stamp and die set from Stampin Up called Sailing Home.

I love this style of card as it also fold flat so it can easily be posted.

I also used a lovely embossing folder called High Seas to create the waves.

I then just added a little bit of balmy blue ink to create the sky.

Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers blog for more wonderful inspiration from the Design Team.


  1. Hi Dawn, this is fabulous! Brilliant idea with the shadow box front - it makes a beautiful effect. I really love it

    1. Thank you. I used this stamp set a lot and found it versatile for all kinds of cards.

  2. Really cool project Dawn and the engineering of it works beautifully with the elements you chose. :D
