Maritime Child's Birthday Card

With pre-0rdering available for the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog beginning, I am trying to decide which retiring items to keep and which to let go of. Several years ago, I chose to keep an unopened pack of Maritime Designer Series Paper. It was too cute and my granddaughter was about a year old. Now I have three grandkids and this paper will come in handy for sending them all kinds of greetings.

Letting go big time, I used almost an entire sheet of the paper to make an envelope with the Envelope Punch Board. I made the card slightly larger than my standard A2 card, so those little hands could open it easier. I love the color scheme of this paper, using Real Red, Night of Navy and Coastal Cabana.

If you didn't know, that print on the right side of the card is one I made myself using the You Are My Anchor stamp set from the April Paper Pumpkin kit. I used Mint Macaron ink since I don't have the returning Coastal Cabana ink just yet. I'm so happy that these two colors are coming back!

I also decided that I cannot let go of my Number of Years stamp set or the Large Numbers Framelits that are both retiring. Kids love to see their numbers on their cards, so they will be coming in handy often. You will see another number card on tomorrow's post, so please come back!
