Fathers Day Sailboat Card


Father's Day cards are always a challenge for me. I think this is because I struggle with those "male themes". A safe design is boats or sailboats, so this Father's Day card uses the sailboat theme.


My goal was to create a card that was easy to make. I started by doing a search for clipart, and looked for a sailboat. Once I picked the one I wanted, I printed it along with "Happy Father's Day" directly onto the card.


Now, the only thing left to do was add quilled embellishments.


For the Quilling I did the following

Clouds



  • 1 - 4 in (10.2 cm) S-Scroll cloud

  • 2 - 3 in (7.6 cm) C-Scrolls to make a cloud.

Birds



  • 3 - 2 in (5.1 cm) strips folded in half

  • Use 1/16th in wide paper.

Waves



  • 2 - 6 in (15.2 cm) Sculpted Loose Coils

  • 1 - 3 in (7.6 cm) Sculpted Loose Coil

  • 1 - 3 in (7.6 cm) S-Scroll

  • Place these underneath the sailboat to add the look of water / waves.

Sails



  • Take multiple colored strips and create Triangle Coil.

  • Make one larger for the outer sail that is blowing in the wind.

  • Create a 6 in (15.2 cm) Triangle for the flag at the top of the mast and there you have it.

A simple card, using few quilled embellishments that add to the overall look of your card.


I hope you enjoy making this card.

Have fun and Enjoy!
