Nautical Banner Shape Card

New challenge starts today at Dies R Us and the theme is
'Shaped Cards".

I came up with the cutest 'banner' shaped card
using Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Banners.

I first cut a card base by laying the biggest of the nesting banner dies
over the fold line on my base with the top part
going just slightly above the fold so as not to cut through.

(This is the back)

I cut a second banner the same size as the base die in yellow card stock,
but this time cut the entire die.
I cut the next size down out of navy blue card stock.

Next, I cut just a small portion of the same size die as above
the used Impression Obsession Kite die,
I cut only the kite string die, laying it across the partial banner
to make waves.

The lighthouse was cut from red card stock and is from 
Cheery Lynn Designs Lighthouses Set.

The sailboats are Impression Obsession Sailboats,
cut from white card stock, then colored in with a red marker.

To finish I added a red/white twine and bow.
